Dennis Sweeney did the unthinkable: he stalked a local woman, abducted her, divided her body into thirty pieces, and mailed the sections to random people. Eighteen of the deliveries were reported to authorities. Pieces is the story of the twelve that were never recovered, the possible reasons why their recipients never told anyone about their grotesque discoveries, and the cat-and-mouse game that developed between Dennis and the jaded reporter to whom he chose to document his sick game.
Come to life in seventeen stories of psychological horror, the residents of Rebecca Rowland’s universe dwell in the everyday realm of crime and punishment tempered with fixation and madness. There are no vampires, zombies, or magical beings here; instead, what lurk in this world are even more terrifying. These monsters don’t lurk under the bed or in the shadows, but they will unsettle you more than any supernatural being ever could.
