    For full review The Limit of Books Does Not ExistTypically I m not a fan of novels filled with short stories I find that one or two of the stories are really good and the rest tend to be below average Thankfully A Twist of the Knife was filled with exciting short stories that each ended with a surprising sometimes deadly twist.If you are a fan of the Roy Grace series, you will be in for a treat because there are 2 Grace stories The first is one of Roy Grace s early cases as a detective an For full review The Limit of Books Does Not ExistTypically I m not a fan of novels filled with short stories I find that one or two of the stories are really good and the rest tend to be below average Thankfully A Twist of the Knife was filled with exciting short stories that each ended with a surprising sometimes deadly twist.If you are a fan of the Roy Grace series, you will be in for a treat because there are 2 Grace stories The first is one of Roy Grace s early cases as a detective and I really enjoyed that story and the twist that Grace figured out The second was a Christmas story that I didn t enjoy as much, but it was still interesting to read about.My favourite novel by James is Dead Simple, which had an alternative ending in A Twist of the Knife The ending of Dead Simple can t be beat a reason why it is one of my favourites , but it was interesting seeing a different, much shorter ending This would be a perfect read if you aren t looking for a full novel and want to read a quick story before bed

    I quickly realised this wouldn t be bedtime reading, then rationed myself to a few stories a day so I could savour the experience With each twist of the knife, a chilling new journey beginsFrom a woman intent on bizarre revenge, to a restaurant critic with a morbid fear of the number thirteen and from a man arranging a life changing assignation, to a couple heading for a disaster filled vacationA new Peter James book is one of the highlights of my year but I confess my heart fell whe I quickly realised this wouldn t be bedtime reading, then rationed myself to a few stories a day so I could savour the experience With each twist of the knife, a chilling new journey beginsFrom a woman intent on bizarre revenge, to a restaurant critic with a morbid fear of the number thirteen and from a man arranging a life changing assignation, to a couple heading for a disaster filled vacationA new Peter James book is one of the highlights of my year but I confess my heart fell when I realised it was a short story collection I ve never been a fan of short stories I don t like the feeling of just getting to know the characters then it s all over too quickly A Twist of the Knife has completely changed my opinion Each story was a new delight and even the very short ones less than a page had an impact.Whilst reading A Twist of the Knife I heard a radio interview with the author who gave some background to some of the stories This added an extra dimension to my enjoyment of the book.The stories I most enjoyed were those based on true incidents as they challenged my scepticism of all things paranormal I vow to beopen minded in future.Thank you to the publisher, via Midas PR, for the proof copy for review

    Within this book there are thirty stories which is quite a collection including two Roy Grace stories, including one from his early days as a Detective Constable and arecent Christmas outing when he helps out policing big entrance on Brighton Pier by parachuting in to deliver presents to children from a local hospice There is also a short story which was the basis of the very first Roy Grace book Dead Simple.There is also a collection which showcases the supernatural themes that grace oth Within this book there are thirty stories which is quite a collection including two Roy Grace stories, including one from his early days as a Detective Constable and arecent Christmas outing when he helps out policing big entrance on Brighton Pier by parachuting in to deliver presents to children from a local hospice There is also a short story which was the basis of the very first Roy Grace book Dead Simple.There is also a collection which showcases the supernatural themes that grace other Peter James novels including a couple of true stories told to him by a local clergyman I didn t know that the Anglican Church officially employed a Minister of Deliverance who visits haunted houses, these stories even had this sceptic nearly convinced Other themes include plenty of comeuppance for those entering into extra marital affairs, a fairly bleak look at the loss of shine in long term marriages and a few that I m convinced were moral boosters when the author turned forty highlighted by the similar sentiments in two adjacent stories There are very short stories, less than a page and longerin depth ones, and only one which I didn t take to at all.This is a great book to dip in and out of as a quick read and some of the twists quite unexpected, the last story in particular was quite gruesome but in most any harm done is off stage so not too upsetting for gentler souls to read before going to sleep.Many of these stories appeared in Short Shockers One and Short Shockers Two although I m reliably informed that there are some new stories included I d like to thank the publishers Pan Macmillan ahead of publication date of 6 November 2014

    I rarely read short stories but I m familiar with Peter James so thought that I would enjoy this collection However, even though I did enjoy the ones that features Roy Grace and the ghost stories I felt disappointed by the rest of them My immediate thoughts were that he was trying to recreate Tales of the Unexpected by Roald Dahl but for me they were not as good I persevered because of the ones that I did like but in future I will stick with the Roy Grace novels.

    A great collection of short stories compiled together in one volume, this book really showcases James love of Crime and Supernatural tales.

    I m always leery of short storiesespecially by authors whose full length novels I really, really likeas in Peter James So I approached this one with caution These are a collection of 30 stories all with a thriller horror theme Peter James also offers us two stories featuring his Detective Roy Grace who has become a trademark series for James As with any collection , each story has a twist ending some predictable and others not so much I was glad I stuck with this book as I found I m always leery of short storiesespecially by authors whose full length novels I really, really likeas in Peter James So I approached this one with caution These are a collection of 30 stories all with a thriller horror theme Peter James also offers us two stories featuring his Detective Roy Grace who has become a trademark series for James As with any collection , each story has a twist ending some predictable and others not so much I was glad I stuck with this book as I found I really likedof them than I didn t like

    Not sure if this will put people off or not, I hope not as it s meant as a complement, but very reminiscent of Jeffrey Archer

    I m not a fan of short stories but I do enjoy Peter James horror novels I love the Roy Grace series so was hopeful that I d like these on the whole I did All the stories feature a twist surprise, surprise but by the time I was probably a third of the way through, it was too easy to see the where things were going,Virtually Alivebeing the only one that caught me by surprise to be honest if it had been further along in the book I don t think it would have For my taste the book w I m not a fan of short stories but I do enjoy Peter James horror novels I love the Roy Grace series so was hopeful that I d like these on the whole I did All the stories feature a twist surprise, surprise but by the time I was probably a third of the way through, it was too easy to see the where things were going,Virtually Alivebeing the only one that caught me by surprise to be honest if it had been further along in the book I don t think it would have For my taste the book was too long, IMHO a book of short stories should be a short book this could easily be split into two volumes if not three There s 30 stories in all so I m only going to share my thoughts on two or three of themSun Over the Yard Armat 34 pages is the longest of the tales quite frankly one of the most boring stories I ve ever readbut contrasts nicely withThe Knockwhich at 4 lines yes lines, not pages has to be one of the shortest short stories ever A great touch that surely can t fail to raise a wry grin o Despite being a huge Roy Grace fan I wasn t enamoured with any of the shorts I remember reading the first part ofSanta Drops Inin a Sunday paper a few years back never bothered to read the end what a cheesy one it turned out to be, disappointing.All the other stories were entertaining enough I preferred the first half of the book to the second but I think I was wearying of the sameiness of them all towards the end Had I read the odd one at a time instead of continuously maybe they would have seemed a bit fresher less predictable A book best for dipping in out of
