The First Review Is In!

(28/3/2020) Today, I received my first review of my new book from Readers' Favorite; an American book review website. Here it is -

5 Stars

Jack did not know that his life would change in a flash. An ordinary day transformed into a mysterious one when a man gave him an envelope and told him to hand it over to a tall man wearing a blue pin-stripe suit with a red carnation. His innate attraction to mystery got the better of him. Jack carried out the instructions and passed on the envelope to the man who matched the description. After the incident, he could not find his red scarf anywhere. And, the next day, the newspaper reported that a dead body had been found with a red scarf stuffed into its pocket. What transpired next gave Jack many sleepless nights, panicked thoughts, and a shocking revelation. The Crimson Scarf and Other Stories by Elliot Stanton is a collection of seventeen such riveting short stories. There is no ordinary or predictable story in The Crimson Scarf and Other Stories. The characters appear normal until they shock you with their actions. Some stories put the fear of Karma into the reader's heart, whereas some will marvel at the disturbing actions of the characters. The exceptional development of each story combined with nail-biting suspense leaves readers turning the pages in anticipation. An occasional paranormal twist is another clever move by the author. For readers who are drawn towards mysterious plots and wish for a quick dose of thriller, The Crimson Scarf and Other Stories by Elliot Stanton is the right choice. I highly recommend this book to all readers.
