This collection of tales by the No 1 bestselling author features all her best-loved characters: Dr Ruth Galloway, Harry Nelson, Max Mephisto, Detective Harbinder Kaur and more. It includes several stories never published before, most notably a brand new Ruth and Nelson story. A must for all her fans.

Elly Griffiths has always written short stories to experiment with different voices and genres and to explore what some of her much-loved creations such as Dr Ruth Galloway might have done outside of the novels. This collection gathers them all together in one splendid volume.

Here are bite-sized tales to please and entertain every thriller taste as well as all Elly Griffiths’ fans. There are ghost stories and mini cosy mysteries; tales of psychological suspense and poignant vignettes of love and loss. There’s a creepy horror story to make you shiver and a tale narrated by Flint, Ruth Galloway’s cat, to make you smile.

These stories illustrate the breadth and variety of Elly Griffiths’ talent. Even the darkest of them is leavened with light touches of humour. This collection shows an author writing at the top of her game.
