A Sting In The Tale
By Ted Tayler

Series Description:

A collection of twelve short stories, each with an unexpected twist at the end. Love stories, ghost stories and tales of revenge, all sprinkled with a touch of humour.

There is something for everyone, young or old; from the elderly bookshop owner with an unusual talent and his summer of love with a young schoolteacher, to the haunting account of the journey on the last bus back into town from the heart of the countryside, each story has characters and situations you will recognise.

But will you identify the 'sting in the tale' before you turn that final page?

Author Bio For Ted Tayler:

Ted Tayler began writing in 2008 with his book of memories - 'We'd Like to do a Number Now'. After that, he was hooked! His first novel 'The Final Straw' contained murders, music, sex, and comedy. It explored the dilemma - could YOU love a serial killer? A collection of 12 short stories 'A Sting In The Tale' followed with stories from different genres, all with a twist in the final pages. 'Unfinished Business' continued the story of Colin Bailey, the stone cold killer from his first novel, as he returned to the UK with scores to settle.

The first story in 'The Phoenix' series 'The Olympus Project features Colin Bailey the anti-hero from the first two novels. Imagine James Bond as a crime-eradicating vigilante, employed not by national security but by an extremely wealthy, extremely right-wing private group. 

'Gold, Silver, and Bombs' is the second book in the series and is set against the backdrop of the London Olympics. Agents from The Olympus Project bring swift closure for victims of criminals who appear above and beyond the law.

‘Conception’ – The birth of ‘The Phoenix’ is a compilation of the two novels that preceded 'The Phoenix' series. You can catch up with the story so far and discover what moulded the character of the main male protagonist of the series featuring this vigilante killer? 

‘Nothing Is Ever Forever’ the third book in The Phoenix series has several interwoven themes and is full of surprises. There are plenty of twists and turns and the excitement level in the action never dips, whether it’s during the Somerset floods or the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. There’s love gained and love lost; lives saved and lives lost. Each turning page brings another shock.
