Welcome to Christopher Fowler's latest collection of stories of urban dread, designed to fill your waking dreams with dark fears and even darker laughter. A journalist spends a nerve-wracking weekend in the company of Nazis. A tropical holiday takes a nasty turn thanks to a troupe of monkeys, and a waitress challenges a sinister customer in a night restaurant. A tailor plots to escape his execution, London is overrun with rats, serial killers fall in love, and revenge backfires on the unfaithful. As our lives and deaths grow ever stranger, housewives, students and executives all find themselves in situations that become increasingly disturbing. Fowler's powerful narratives are subtly affecting and will make you think twice about the way you look at the world around you.
