There are just two days left to order a signed and personally dedicated copy of The Stoner Stories direct from the author and have it delivered to the UK in time for Christmas. Crime-thriller writer Frank Westworth is poised with his pen to scribble something witty on the opening pages of his new paperback collection of quick thrillers — but you need to get your order in quick. The last batch of books will go into the post on Saturday morning, so please complete your order by midnight on Friday 16 December 2017.
This anthology collects the first five JJ Stoner quick thrillers and includes an all-new, previously unpublished story, SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP. The collection reveals the shadowy secrets of covert operative JJ Stoner, who uses sharp blades, blunt instruments and his innate persuasiveness to discreetly resolve tricky situations for the British government.
The six self-contained stories follow Stoner’s progress, from his final days as a serving soldier to his first private contract, and into the shadow land of the deniable asset.
In The Stoner Stories, only one thing is absolutely inevitable: eventually, everybody dies.
And there’s more exclusive material in this anthology – an insight into the author’s inventive methods of dealing with death, and an intimate encounter with an ice cold killer…
The Stoner Stories features characters from the JJ Stoner / Killing Sisters series. You don’t need to have read any of the other stories in the series: you can start right here if you like.

‘You’re a musician as well as a murderer, Mister Stoner. We have no problem with either talent.’ Again she smiled, a radiance matching his own in its insincerity. ‘And we’re both of us – all of us – aware that in the same way you’ll be able to find an instrument should you decide to play something, so you’ll be able to find a weapon should you decide to kill someone.
‘We have no problem with the music. Just the other thing.’
