Narrators is in love with Clara Henry
Set in USA civil war, Henry the narrator whom we see the story through is deseperatly in love with Clare, but also plagued by an onset of madness.
His descent into madness is clearly portrayed, each terrible vision is shared with such a terrifyingly sad ending.
Very poetical in its carriage, but I found it rambled a little too much for my personal liking.
The Only Good Lawyer:
Bradley has an ego unrivalled, he can win any case, justice bends to his will; but has he met his match in Mr LeVerve.
A brilliant courtroom drama unfolds with voodoo dolls, violence and terrifying moments, I could feel my skin crawling.
A play on the original Dorian Grey, a good twist with an unexpected ending. Short and snappy this was a great mid book story.
For the Birds:
Nev loves his parrot Joji, but she only has eyes for the bag of beef steak. Loved how this sped at great pace through the story, the ending was stomach churningly mean, nasty and fabulous.
Revenge is a Dish:
Maurice ex-chef extraordinaire and recently unemployed plaything of a rich bitch finds himself on a plank floating in the ocean with his imagination running wild.
Some very funny moments mixed in the horrifying visuals. However more than the ocean critters are in store for him. This was my favourite story from this collection, it had such exuberance and a fabulous amount of gore, but told with a real sense of humour.
Although not keen on the first story, a little too poetic in its writing for me, overall I thought what a great collection, JP certainly has a wide variety of writing styles and uses them to maximum effect.
