Many thanks to the authors for a copy of this novella. All opinions are expressed voluntarily.
3 short stories, that are guaranteed to make a reader go crazy. Each story has a professional person in a kind of fix coz of something happening around them.
Let me begin with The Nurse, honestly, 10 min into the story I was so angry and frustrated that I wanted to tear my hair out. Arggh…. I sincerely hope that these kinds of monsters do not survive in this world.
The Teacher is another story that left me feeling even worse than the main character in the story. The knowledge that such terrible abuse of power happens around us is the dilemma that gave me nightmares. It is inevitable to wish for something dreadful when the authorities refuse to listen to facts.
The 3rd story, The Gardener was an absolute eye-opener. It shows us that abuse can be two-ways and that it is not always the man who is the perpetrator.
Each of these stories, The Nurse, The Teacher, The Gardener are a prequel to the crime thriller The Burying Place by the author duo. This appetizer is surely not enough to whet our appetite so make sure you have the copy of the burying place else like me, you are gonna give those pillows a few punches before a feeling of calm can be achieved.
You have motive. You have means. Do you take the opportunity?
Three innocent people, from three different walks of life, are presented with an impossible decision
