My Review


"Miranda Rijks' GASPS may be short stories, but this gasp-worthy knock-out collection of 22 irresistible psychological thrillers is big on entertainment and ideal for sampling! The author cleverly showcases her signature chills, thrills, dark humor, and wicked, twisty revenge plots that keep fans returning for more! Razor-sharp, these deliciously mischievous bite-size tales are a super addition to her list of hit titles. Highly recommend—a must-read for psychological thriller fans."

“A deliciously dark collection of startling short stories, quirky characters and twisty endings. Expect the unexpected, the bizarre and the unsettling in this absolute page-turning triumph! A moreish medley of revenge, misfortune and woe.”

- AJ Wills – bestselling author of The Phantom Child

“Rijks is a masterful storyteller and expertly lures you into a world that is at times shocking, creepy and wicked, but is always deeply satisfying. From Dissonance, a story about a musical prodigy whose ambition to be the best does not lead to happiness, to Eviction, a chilling tale about a woman who plans her revenge on a scammer, each story will leave you gasping for more.”

- AJ McDine - best-selling author of The Baby.

"Mysterious, twisted, dark, eerie, disturbing, and unsettling—this collection has it all. Each story is remarkably unique, showcasing the versatility of this talented author. You will be thrilled and satisfied by clever twists, shiver at dark turns, and find your heart touched by others.

I loved picking up these stories for a quick escape when I only had a few minutes to spare. Each and every one made me gasp—some with a tiny intake of unexpected emotion, some with shock."

- Cathryn Grant - best-selling author of The Favourite Child
