A Twist of the Knife

Peter James


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 13; and from a man arranging a life-changing assignation, to a couple heading for a disaster-filled vacation. In 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. Each tale carries a twist that will haunt readers for days after they turn the final page. 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.
