Synopsis

A collection of 16 thrilling short stories, all with murder in mind and deed. Many told from the point of view of the killer and injected with a corkscrew twist in the tail. The tales are wrapped inside a scenario of the reader discovering them in a hidden cellar found beneath the kitchen floor, your own kitchen floor!

The stories range from a genuine cliff-hanger to a Hitchcock shower scene – in fact 2 shower scenes! A story about a new prison guard’s terror and then a tale of an attempt to raise the devil. We then glimpse into a crime writer’s solution to multiple murders and then an extreme solution taken to fix a toothache.

Just a taste of the variety of the tales of the murderous people inside The Trapdoor to Murder.
Murder by – GUN – KNIFE – HAMMER – FLAGPOLE!
Read it to believe it.
