The Devil in Me by Christopher Fowler

The Devil in Me

Christopher Fowler

A dozen smart and very different short stories which make you re-examine the everyday. Darkly humourous with a twist. Expect the unexpected and enjoy!

Extract

Emma agreed to sit for me at some point in the future, and although there was never a suggestion that our session would develop into anything more, I could tell that it probably would. I was about to kiss her when she suddenly thought something had bitten her, and I was forced to explain that my coat had picked up several fleas from my cat. She went off me after this, and grew silent, so I left.
