cover54751-smallI’m a fan of Dark Fuse novellas. Almost every one I’ve read has been well written and enjoyable and Facial by Jeff Strand is no exception. Although I very nearly put it down after just a few pages…

To call the plot of this book bizarre is to do it a great injustice. It is totally nutty bonkers but in such an entertaining way that I read it all in one (late night) sitting.

I really don’t want to give anything away – discovering the madness is all part of the fun – but it involves brothers, a cheating wife, murder and a few heads. Oh, and not forgetting the decomposing lion. Look, it’s not a long story but it is fun and well worth the price.
