We gave it a B+

Saunders, an American businessman who earned his fortune razing mom-and-pop stores to make way for a giant coffee chain, is taking a train from London to Liverpool when he’s joined in first class by a talking, trenchcoat-wearing wolfman. Other menacing canine bipeds climb aboard, and a grisly scene ensues by the time the train pulls into its destination. The allegorical aspect of the story is a little heavy — think literal Wolves of Wall Street — but it’s an e-book equivalent of watching a good episode of Tales From the Darkside. WHY E-ONLY Like a Twilight Zone episode or a campfire tale, this dark little nugget of a story from Stephen King’s elder son lasts just long enough to give you a quick scare and a laugh before it bites you in the end. Not bad for 99 cents. B+
