    In the darkest corner of a Russian antique shop stands an empty mirror frame. For half a century it has made the proprietor feel uneasy: but now he has found a way to send it half way across the world, out of sight and mind. When it reaches its new destination, it sets in motion a deeply unsettling chain of events. A cracking roller-coaster of a ghost story, linking all the flamboyance of 19th century Petersburg with a sleepy English village in the 21st century.

    Victor Peskett reveals in this book the workings of the Guardians of the Poor in Metfield, Suffolk, a village committee with powers to levy a charge on the community and, after close examination, disperse funds to support the poor, according to their needs and their means. Peskett's painstaking research into the minutes of the Guardians' meetings has uncovered not the dry transactions of a local administrative committee, but an illumination of the past two short centuries ago.

    Miranda is used to getting her own way. Her tantrums, sulks and pouts are driving her family mad. The police are called after an incident and arrive with a strange, scary woman that looks like a raven. Their warnings fall on deaf ears as Miranda thinks no one can touch her. Maybe a family holiday with a terrible twist could set Miranda straight on how it feels to be on the receiving end of terrible tantrums!

    This is my latest collection of short stories. As with the previous books, most of these 11 tales are set in Thailand. You can hear about a domestic cleaner who despairs of her feckless husband, a junior bank teller who tries to convince her boss there's been a murder, a lady in a hurry who won't stop to help an old man who's lost his shorts, a butcher and a restaurateur discussing farming techniques, and a lady-boy searching for love.
