A Twist of the Knife is Peter James’s gripping first full-length collection of short stories now containing the novellas The Perfect Murder, Footloose written with Val McDermid and In The Nick of Time written with Ian Rankin. 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 thirteen, and from a man arranging a life-changing assignation to a couple heading for a disaster-filled vacation . . .

In multimillion-copy bestselling author Peter James’s collection of short stories we first come to meet Brighton’s finest detective, Roy Grace, in his first case as a young constable and read the tale that went on to inspire James’s hugely successful novel, Dead Simple. Each tale carries a twist that will haunt readers for days after they turn the final page . . .

Combining every twisted tale from the eBook bestsellers Short Shockers: Collection One and Short Shockers: Collection Two, 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.

‘Peter will send chills up your spine and make you jump at all those bumps in the night. Easily digestible and each one as fantastically goose bump-inducing as the last . . . Brilliant stuff’ – Heat
