Well, this was disappointing.
It's not just disappointing by comparison with the previous book I read, which was fab, but I am entirely put off by the fact that this was called a short story collection.
This contained five stories, that is true, but one was the preface to a novel, two were only a couple of pages long, one was so obscure that the author himself felt the need to explain it, and most of them I could not see the point in.
I currently have four called and read squares sitting in a row, and the Halloween square is the only one missing. So, in anticipation of that square being called (which would give me a bingo), I'll turn to David Blixt's collection of short stories.
I did consider re-reading Hallowe'en Party by Dame Agatha, but I have had Sincerity on my kindle for a few years now and really want to get rid of at least one book on my virtual TBR.
One person from 4 different families have a possessed music box thrust upon them by a dead witch that has been stalking their families for 200 years. They have 7 days from receipt to lock them down. They must meet and battle the witch for the keys on her home turf. If they don't find them in time, if at all, the demon possesses them. A long lingering death. Age is not a consideration.
Definitely will be reading book 2.
