An artist's Pomeranian has been replaced by an imposter.
COURT, MARRY, KILL
Whose body ends up being unzipped by fish on the ocean floor?
A female-only cult has a very dark side.
HE DID IT
A detective relies on his gut (and his hallucinations) to help him solve murder cases.
THE BRAIN BLEACHER
He can remove your pain by hacking your memory, but his own suffering is here to stay.
"Lawrence makes every word count, telling each story with elegance and emotional punch." - Patsy Hennessey
"Each story is masterfully constructed ... Humorous, touching, creepy, but most of all entertaining, this collection is superb." - Tracy Michelle Anderson
If you're a fan of Roald Dahl or Gillian Flynn you'll love this collection of unsettling stories with a twist in the tale. Get it now.
I’m not a short story kind of reader, but after loving the first book I needed to listen to the second part, and I have to say that I love it as much as the first book. Janita surprises us again with an explosion of creativity, charismatic characters, and very special plots.
Some stories are an answer to stories in the first book. I enjoyed meeting the hotel reviewer again, and also the detective with his imaginary friend. Rockabye Baby reminded me a lot of the world in When Tomorrow Calls, and The Brain Bleacher could just be the gist of a greater story. These twelve stories tickled my imagination like sparks on a dark night.
This time it’s Roshina Ratnam who narrates the book. I like the previous narrator, but meeting Ratnam again was a pleasant surprise. She is also the narrator of the When Tomorrow Calls series, and I have to say that I love her powerful style. She transports the listener to far away worlds and traps you with her distinctive voice. Her character interpretations are top notch, and especially enjoyed how she pronounced ‘kakkerlak’. I speak a bit of Dutch, so it’s always nice how Dutch words are pronounced in other parts of the world.
There is yet another book with twelve more short stories. I’m impatient to listen to those.I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist to a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-years stay in Belgium, three cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a Gouldian finch in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
