(Released in the US as Canned)
Some bright, shiny, unlabelled cans for sale in the cut-price bargain bin in the supermarket. But when one of them rattles, and is opened, and a human finger is found inside…
‘This Dahl-esque black comedy will have readers squirming on the edge of their seats. Funny, frightening and totally gross – Alex Shearer taps into the repulsive-but-appealing tradition of urban myths that are perennial playground fodder’
‘This macabre mystery may make readers give up canned foods. Shearer’s delightfully droll, dark humor makes for many light moments. Readers with a taste for the bizarre and gross will find this tale most tasty’.
‘A highly entertaining and hilariously gruesome comedy thriller – beans on toast will never be the same again!’
