    Have you ever listened to those late night radio serials? You know the onesthey last for an hour half an hour or sometimes just fifteen minutesOften it is the shortest serials that have the biggest shocks In Predator or Prey a brilliant title I have to say author J New introduces us to a dark and macabre worldWhat is so remarkable is that I believe the author must be a Stephen King fan as are many of us but she has that rare thing as he does the art of turning something normal into something abnormal unsettling and very very disturbingPredator or Prey is a collection of wicked and purposely short tales that literally will have you scared to read the last few sentences It is as if the author enjoys spinning us a story only to bludgeon us to bits in a good way at each stories conclusionThere are ten tales in all and for me the stand out ones were App For Life Wo Man's Best Friend and A Blessing in Disguise?I admit to have felt rather disturbed and unclean after reading some of these tales that is the power of a truly great authorKeep an eye or two on this talented author J New is going to be around for a long while scaring the hell out of usIf you want a collection of spine chilling tales look no further Predator or Prey is IT

    I just finished reading a fantastic book by a wonderful author JNew If you’re a fan of paranormal supernatural mystery and suspense and you love movies like Shawkshank Redemption The Sixth Sense Ghost and One Who Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest then you will love JNew’s book It’s a compilation of thirteen spectacular crafted stories with crazy twists and turns and endings that will leave you scratching your head in awe As I read each story I found myself gasping and holding my breath at each bizarre ending and just when I thought I knew what was going on ‘BAM’ I was thrown for a loop I’m surprised at how much I loved each story from beginning to end And I want to thank Ms J New because I took another trip outside my comfort zone

    I enjoyed this book and I tore through it really uick because of how good it was I liked that the book was composed of short stories This is perfect for me with my busy lifestyle as I was able to read one go to class and then read another after The book is so fast paced and the stories are written well Each story is a different from the last one and I thoroughly enjoyed each one immensely I love how the book is a mixture of horror crime mystery action and some amazing twists and turns This is probably one of the best that I have read in a long time I'm recommending this short story book to some of my friends

    I've always loved stories with twist endings Ten of them in one book? Now we're talkingOf course these are short stories which means that by the time we've figured out what's going on and determined what the twist ending means we're on to the next story And then the next And so onEach of the ten tales is uniuely twisted in its own way which speaks to the imagination of J New I can only hope that a full length novel eually twisty and turny is in the near future

    Totally uniueEach short story is emotionally charged and thought provoking The time investment for the reader is minimal for each of these 'flash' fiction tales but the reward enormous I am personally looking forward to seeing much from this new author Her imagination is wild and her voice compelling

  6. Allan Lewis Allan Lewis says:

    Predator or Prey is a mixture of tales of Crime Horror and Mystery A bit like Tales of the Unexpected and everyone a gem The stories are short and teasing just as you are getting into the story and wanting to read on the story ends leaving you wanting The author is obviously talented and has a very imaginative mind that likes to shock you A little along the lines of Stephen KingIf you like short stories then this book is for you

    Predator or Prey is a collection of short stories and flash fiction by British writer J New Each entry is a tale of mystery and suspense with a twist in the tail ‘A Bolt from the Blue’ is a swift but shocking view of domestic violence ‘App for Life’ also focuses on domestic abuse but not as normally portrayed ‘A Kind Gesture’ is a tale of someone who deserves it getting their just desserts ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ is a modern day take on Faust ‘A Good Day’ focuses on a school bully’s determined victim ‘A Little Peace and uiet’ is the tale of a single mother on the edge ‘A Shiny New Bike’ looks at family dynamics following an accident ‘A Sting in the Tale’ enters the Catholic confessional ‘A Blessing in Disguise’ follows a child’s abduction ‘Woman’s Best Friend’ is another twisted tale of domestic abuseEach of the stories in Predator or Prey are well written but many are flash fiction extremely uick short stories which can sometimes hamper their effectiveness ‘A Kind Gesture’ is disturbing but its brevity leaves some unexplored avenues that would have benefitted from a longer story the protagonist is a doctor? ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ and ‘A Blessing in Disguise’ are similarly hampered and didn’t really work for me The best of J New’s tales are the swift but shockingly effective ‘A Little Peace and uiet’ the heartbreakingly clever ‘A Shiny New Bike’ and the slightly lengthier and creepy ‘A Sting in the Tale’ Overall the collection is interesting and I would read from her For Readers’ Favorite
