The Birthday Party


James Oswald


Frankly I'm getting a bit bored of writing these short descriptions. The story itself will only take you fifteen minutes to read, so why not do that instead. You'll enjoy it. Honest.




The second in the series of short stories featuring Edinburgh-based Detective Inspector Anthony McLean. This is perhaps more overtly a horror story than most, although if the reaction to the novel Natural Causes is anything to go by, I seem to be writing horror stories anyway. I don't think of them as that myself - I've never been a great fan of horror. Perhaps I should try it.
