A Menu of Death by Lucy Pireel is a collection of 8 recipes to titillate the taste buds of the mind and will leave the reader hungry for more. Human frailty is cleverly dissected and served on a platter of spatter or sometimes stirred into a rich stew best delivered to The Walking Dead. Greed, remorse, love, hate, murder, revenge, are all on display and skilfully blended into a soufflé of death best served straight out of hell. My favourite episode was Reunion where a woman searches for her sani ...more

“A Menu of Death” by Lucy Pireel is a selection of very strong short stories, all written with a raw, edgy and bloody pen. Ranging from harsh reality to fantasy territory they provoke, open your mind, change your perspective, entertain and take you to the edge of your seat.

Excellently written, tightly edited and brilliantly compiled into a varied yet homo ...more

In the past I've never really liked books full of short stories. Short stories were something to be read in magazines in the doctor's waiting room. Since ebooks came along I'm hooked.
Having a quick read on hand for a wait or a journey is great. The stories here range in style but all have untimely death as their basis. Revenge, curiosity, come-uppance, amongst some of the topics, all dealt out with believable panache. What a way to start the day on the way to work! But don't read them as you sn

A haunting, gruesome, good read!

I really enjoyed this book, and because it is small, it only took me a few hours to read. It is an anthology of short stories that explore themes of domestic abuse, murder, psychopathic tendencies, and good old-fashioned ghost stories. My favourites were 'A Dollar’s Worth' and 'Reunion'. I also quite enjoyed 'Bloodwork', although that did disturb me quite a bit! If you enjoy classic horror then I recommend you read this book, and it is certainly a great addition t
