This consisted of two short stories and a sample from two other novels. The first of the shorts, I found a little strange and the second was slightly comic though rather macabre. The samples clearly showed that the two novels were quite different from each other, though I have to be honest and say that I was not sufficiently tantalised to want to read either. The author’s style is very acceptable, but I found the repetition of some words a little distracting. However, if you like ‘dark’, then this is for you.
