Killer, Come Back to Me: The Crime Stories of Ray Bradbury
Most people know Ray Bradbury either for his bestselling novels, like Fahrenheit 451 or the Martian Chronicles, or his numerous short story collections such as I Sing the Body Electric or the October Country, but did you know the prolific author also penned a number of mystery and crime stories? Yeah, I didn’t either. Thankfully, the great people at Hard Case Crime have brought all these stories together in Killer Come Back to Me.
The collection opens with a man on a train who confronts his future, older self, only to learn that at some point he will murder his wife, and his future self has come back to attempt to right this wrong. But can you change the events of the past, or are they set in stone, forever to play out as they have? In another story, a kid hears the screams of a woman trapped and buried beneath the ground, but none of the adults are able to hear her, the question is whether the boy will be able to find the killer before it’s too late.
Twenty stories show a new side of Ray Bradbury, in his mastery of the crime genre. Fans will be caught up in these gripping stories.
