A woman who loves cats perhaps just a little too much; a pair of spinsters not to be underestimated; a bullied boy at the end of his tether; a successful couple about to lose everything... These and other stories begin so innocently, but there is often darkness hidden in everyday lives...
This collection of seven short stories will surprise and entertain with their unusual take on modern lives.
These six tales span the genres of ghost story, mystery, horror, and suspense. Some look back on dark times, others look forward to an apocalyptic future, and still others dwell on a terrible present – but they have one thing in common: they are all dark. Don’t expect happy endings or pleasant characters here, for there is something dark lurking in the shadows of each tale waiting to get out.
