The book is an anthology of unusual and mysterious stories told by regulars at the local bar on Christmas Eve, which each began with a phone call from someone who announced “you don’t know me, but we’re cousins.
Fantastic plot development and well explained the complex situations with twists. You would keep guessing what extreme levels and terrifying situations the characters can go through after the lifeline calls turns into a disaster.
The glossary of the words is provided in the end for reference and well-researched insights on hippocampal prosthetic.
There is a smooth transition from stories told from the perspective of each character to the scene in Coffin Bar. I loved the cliffhanger climax and the story of the animal head which is very challenging to write.
