Thirteen stories from crime and horror writer Townsend covering 20+ years of published and unpublished stories. As with all short collections there are stories that work for you, and ones that don’t. The first story, the 13th floor is one of the better stories, although does have a couple of flaws. I also really liked Blue eyes, a story about passion and obsession and Jimi Hendrix eyes, about betrayal and cigarette burns about abuse. Mainly because I prefer psychological to overt supernatural there were a couple of stories that didn’t gel with me, especially the guitar (about a haunted guitar, I just found that concept a bit silly really), but thankfully the stories that were good far outweigh those I didn’t get on with.

Overall – Mixed collection of shorts from 20+ years’ worth of writing ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0953001628, Paperback)

Thirteen horror stories from horror and crime novelist Sara Jayne Townsend. These stories are angsty, dealing with negative emotions and darkness of the soul. These stories are about that inner scream that no one can hear but you. These stories will haunt you. "Townsend writes accomplished, powerful stories of mystery and fear, with places and themes we all recognise, and delicious twists in the tail." - Tim Lebbon, author of Echo City. "The stories of Sara Jayne Townsend are crafty, heartfelt and chilling, shot through with a dark streak of gallows humour. A definite talent and a name to watch." - Gavin Williams, author of Hush and Driver: Nemesis (writing as Alex Sharp). Featuring a Foreword by Mystery and Crime novelist Sally Spedding.
