Peter James' gripping first full-length collection of 30 short stories, including all the stories featured in ebooks Short Shockers One and Short Shockers Two, plus many more

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.


"The versatile James displays a macabre sense of humor." —Publishers Weekly
