A Twist of the Knife Synopsis

With each twist of the knife, a chilling new journey begins ...From a woman intent on bizarre revenge, to a restaurant critic with a morbid fear of the number thirteen; and from a man arranging a life-changing assignation, to a couple heading for a disaster-filled vacation ...In multi-million-copy bestselling author Peter James' collection of short stories we first come to meet Brighton's finest detective, Roy Grace, and read the tale that went on to inspire James' hugely successful novel, Dead Simple. James exposes the Achilles heel of each of his characters, and makes us question how well we can trust ourselves, and one another. Each tale carries a twist that will haunt readers for days after they turn the final page ...Combining every twisted tale from the ebook bestsellers Short Shockers One and Short Shockers Two, with a never-seen-before collection of new material, A Twist of the Knife shows Peter James as the undisputed grand master of storytellers with this sometimes funny, often haunting, but always shocking collection.

The Good Book Guide Review

Given the fact that collections of short stories are considered something of a hard sell by publishers these days, it is perhaps unsurprising that Macmillan gives no indication that Peter James’ debut collection (in print at least), A Twist of the Knife, is anything other than a novel (although the strapline tips the wink with the phrase ‘featuring the story that inspired the Roy Grace series’). But such caution seems hardly necessary. In fact, James proves (unsurprisingly) to be a master of the form, as those familiar with his work over many years will not be astonished to learn, and as well as encountering his massively successful Brighton detective Roy Grace, we are granted a truly cherishable bushel of sting-in-the tail stories, taken from the e-book bestsellers Short Shockers and Short Shockers 2, plus new material that at times even rivals the master of the shocking short story, the great Roald Dahl.
