Recommended Read: Monkey Justice and Other Stories by Patricia Abbott

monkey justicePatricia Abbott’s Monkey Justice stands head and shoulders above almost all short story collections out there. This is a mature and assured collection of brilliant stories that show us a great deal about the lives of  the wide range of characters.

Personal favourites include ‘The Instrument Of Her Desire’, ‘Georgie’ and ‘The Squatter’ but there really isn’t a duff story in this fantastic, brilliantly written collection which spans noir, crime fiction, slice-of-life, gothic and just ace writing.
