“The creators of Twelve Hours Later continue to promote literacy one sensational story at a time by donating a portion of their proceeds to literary charities, but no boring works with fluffy kittens here.

These are stories to relish and read under the covers into the wee hours of the morning. They’ve done it again-Full marks!”
