Shadow Play         
Shadow Play
By Jeffrey B. Burton

Don't turn around. Walk fast, faster because someone or something might just be after you. This superb short story collection offers enough mystery, murder, mayhem, and twists and turns to fill a whole seasons worth of the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents or The Twilight Zone television episodes.

Jeffrey B. Burton's next book, Sleuth Slayer, written in partnership with his father, is also published by Pocol Press. His website is SomeHack.com.

Shadow Play is also available as an ebook on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

Text Of Review:

SHADOW PLAY is a collection of twenty short stories, twisted through a kaleidoscope of macabre and chilling colors. Each tale seems to illustrate the axiom that looks can be deceiving.

In "Eykiltimac Stump Acres," we meet Dwight, a senior citizen debilitated with Altzheimers who does remember a thing or two.... "The Tenth One" shows us that concentrated effort really does pay off...for a while. "Clippings," reminds us everyone has the right to voice their opinion. And in "One Last Sliver," the author gives a wink and a nod to Poe.

My biggest complaint with SHADOW PLAY was the uneven caliber of the stories. Mr. Burton's writing appeared rushed in some of the selections, the plot forced onto unexpected tangents for the sake of a shocking twist at the end. Yet, I found the majority of his ghastly tales entertaining with a certain tongue-in-cheek dark humor worth consideration.
