Twists in the Tale ebook: EPUB

In Vienna, schizophrenic, Sam Baldock, is haunted by Beethoven in A Musical Calling. Nurse Amanda is drawn into the wiles of a Harley Street hypnotist. The roots of a yew tree deliver more than sap in Family Tree. Emily is determined to 'reach out' to her dead husband. Stories blending eeriness, suspense, tenderness and the poignancy of lives which could be yours when driven to extremity. STORIES A Musical Calling - Schizophrenic Sam Baldock is given a day out - his last - at the Beethoven Museum in Vienna where he believes he is called by the spirit of Beethoven. What will his little daughter witness at the top of those winding steps to the Pasqualati House on the Molkerbastie, which once led to the rooms of the composer in 1810? Father’s Helping Hand - Octogenarians Hubbald & Bros, piano tuners at their Old Chapel workshops, seem almost too kind when they choose to make a gift of a Steinway to their ‘favourite’ customer. Nanny’s Friends - ‘She calls them her little friends,’ Suzy slurred. ‘Miss Harlow says that when it’s time for a doll to “stay” with her, she “prepares” eyes, really beauuuutiful eyes for it.’ The Rum Barber’s Baby - Harry the barber was vast; a Sumo wrestler without the wrestle but it was only after two vandals had sprayed his shop window in boot-high capitals with I’M TOO FAT TO - - - - that he’d finally come to hate himself. NOVELLA – A ROMANCE A Face in a Corridor - Can a paranoid stop himself from destroying she alone who might have shown him what love could be? At night-time her teacher enters the closed and dimly lit college buildings and, in the empty classrooms and the silent corridors, he tries to come to terms with what seem the appearances of the students and their culture. They have so reduced him and, in turn, made him suspicious of the girl he wants to trust as his passport to their acceptance. Reviews ' Atmospheric, vibrant, spooky page-turner. ' Reay Tannahill - historian, novelist and author of The Seventh Son. ' The sense of atmosphere and place developed is exquisitely detailed. ' Jack Hughes – author of Dawn of Shadows “ Some of the stories have a cosy fireside start to them but this is probably what makes the sinister the more effective when the narrative drifts into some of its macabre twists. What the two outwardly endearing old boys do in the supposedly disused crematorium at the back of the converted chapel where they store and repair pianos is often as fiendishly contrived as a Hitchcock film except in miniature. In "The Parchment Recipes", the covers of the book have a 'creeping' similarity to the feel of dried skin but in following the sixteenth century recipes once written in freehand, Emily is able to 'reach out' to her lost husband's spirit, almost as if she is actually touching him. Generally, unsettling yet moving. ” - Susanna Deakin
