Thirteen fabulous crime stories from Ben Westerham’s highly popular ‘Shorts in the Dark’ series. It’s time to take a wander into the darker recesses of the mind



The Old Man’s Shed – School-boy Jacob Whistler finds his neighbour’s shed an irresistible temptation. But what is it he finds lurking inside?


Alone in the Dark - “There’s something about watching others in the night that appeals to me. It always has.”


The Pond - Revenge can come in many guises and sometimes from places we would never have expected.


A Pound Coin – Can a life really be worth so little?


Walking into Trouble – Family emotions can be more extreme than most.


A Parcel of Trouble – Private investigator Nat Gillies receives an unexpected parcel that he soon wishes he’d never set eyes on.


Money Love – When the love of money proves greater than the love of another human-being, the outcome is not likely to be a happy one.


'Harry Minch' - Revenge is a boomerang that garage owner Harry Minch fails to see coming.


'The Handbag' – A woman’s handbag can be more dangerous than you might think.


‘The Price of Envy’ - Charlie Mean is consumed by envy. For someone it will prove fatal.


'360 Degree Feedback' - They say feedback is a gift, but sometimes what it gives can be entirely unexpected.


‘The Old Hand’ - An ageing crook thinks it’s time to do a good deed, but is his help really wanted?


‘Obsession’ - Obsession can make a man blind to reality and drive him to the edge of madness.



It’s dark. It’s criminal. It’s unmissable.
