Behind Closed Doors is a short story anthology from some of the UK’s premier and up and coming horror writers.
Come and meet the residents of the Watch Tower apartment block, one of the most prestigious apartment blocks in the country and home to some of the most twisted, depraved people in this world. A den of immorality, wickedness and a body count that comes straight from the warped nightmares of Matt Shaw.

For the most part, I really enjoyed this eager awaited book. The usual suspects came up trumps and gave the readers exactly what we had been expecting from this eclectic mixture of writers.

Stuart Keane's contribution was a complete mind-f*** which I had to reread to get the constant shifting, whilst Andy Lennon's and Shaun Hupp's stories both had that all-out no holds barred gross element down pat. Matt Hickman's was exactly what I was expecting and a welcome change of pace to the other stories

Insanely good

If it were possible to leave more than 5 stars, this book would get 10! Each and every story was a mini masterpiece. I enjoyed this thoroughly and it's no shit sandwich :)
You couldn't tempt me into living at the Watch Tower but I highly recommend reading about it.

Disturbing, disgusting, horrifying, terrorizing, are just a few words I would use to describe this fantastic book. Once again these very talented authors have put together exactly what a horror book should be. The stories fit perfectly together and the terror and gross factor build and build and the you get to the last story written by the most disturbed of them all Mr. Matt Shaw and it just blows you away. I would highly recommend this book to everybody who loves a good scare. If I could giv

I thought this book would potentially turn out to be similar to "Blood Bath". Prior to reading that I wasn't a fan of short stories , but the collaborative work and talent of the authors soon changed my mind.

Behind Closed Doors had the potential for being great and I hate to say this, but given the calibre of the authors here the only shock factor was how boring most of the stories were. I was sorely disappointed and bored. So much so I did the unthinkable and gave up on some of the

Some twelve years later (wandering the corridors of the hospital and playing with road kill when he was on day release), the listing closed and he remained unsold, he was booted out of the hospital to start his life a
