Cornelius Harker - Supernatural thriller
A Dish Best Served Cold
Amazon.com A Dish Best Served Cold
This creepy and chilling novella is something of a departure for Cornelius Harker, better known for his dark, Gothic fantasy, the Words to the Wise saga Words to the Wise: Book One (The Awakening). In contrast to his usual work, this is set in modern times and takes place over a short time scale which cleverly builds the emotional density and tension. Would you answer a cry for help from a friend in the middle of the night? Are you sure? This little gem of a story may make you re-think!
The ending of this book is a real surprise! I guarantee that you will not see it coming, even though all the elements are there if you only pick them up. As usual, Cornelius Harker's use of language makes his work instantly recognisable and it is always a pleasure to read.
