There’s nothing cosy about these crimes.
Succulent rich stories of the dark and unknown that might terrify, horrify, or deliciously delight. Thirty-two previously published and prize winning tales that contain themes of death, destruction, abuse and emotion, each one a veritable stride into a unique and different world. From the psychologically disturbed, the raging mad, the vulnerability of victims, and desperately needy, there’s not much that isn’t covered in the dark genre for those that like their stories to be troubling, distressing and quirky. NOT for the faint of heart, this comes with a triple X warning!

A Bowl of Cherries is a short story collection which portray the dark side of humanity.
This book is not for the faint hearted as include 32 short stories of death, abuse, drama and destruction.
Some stories are shocking and others have an emotional side. Baby Butterfly left me feeling distress for the baby and sadness for the mother.
Hedgehogs, Green Bottles, and Lillies I found a very upsetting story of how alcohol abuse can directly affect the ones you love.
These stories highlight how some people can be fragile and yet damaging towards each other.
