The first review for An Odd Quartet is in and it's also my first Goodreads review - which is nice :-)
As the name implies, this is a novella length book containing 4 short stories. Their themes are both the usual and the unusual – the ghostly haunting, the personification of Death – a Swat Team entering a building and a Demon undertaking his Demon Test! They are dealt with very imaginatively and I really enjoyed reading them. The endings are all a little different from what you’d imagine and I like that in a story. I don’t like to know or guess the ending.
Michael Brookes’ writing style is easy and accessible. He can certainly turn out a story you will remember.
