Description

An anthology of crime from a distinguished selection of British writers - A verger's son, whose childhood playground was a graveyard, remembers a night best forgotten . . . Two drug addicts find that theft does not pay . . . A corrupt politician charges a curious vehicle to his expenses . . . The latest showcase of shorts from the CWA takes readers on a twisted route to the origin of evil: original sin. From a fish that can't help but dispense his own kind of justice, to an assassin handling a misogynistic client, these tales demonstrate that, for some, there's no going against their own nature.
