Overview

Guinea Pigs is the follow-up to James Howell's infamous Disturbed Girl trilogy.

This dark collection of short stories examines three seemingly unconnected people as they slide along separate paths towards chaos and tragedy. Will any of them find salvation, or will they all be destroyed by the terrible deception that unites them?

Guinea Pig 1 - The Man Who Couldn't Laugh
Colin Jones is a neurotic suburban nobody who has a serious problem with his new neighbours. Spurred on by what he reads in the tabloid press, how far will he go to get them evicted?

Guinea Pig 2 - A Wild Life
A damaged woman travels to Africa to escape from her life of sex and violence. As she touches down in the Gambia, she has no idea that her nightmare is just beginning.

Guinea Pig 3 - Red Demon
Detective Josh Brody works in the bleak underbelly of south London trying to protect victims of hate crime. It is a grim world, and he might be closer to the misery than he realises.

About the Author

James Howell (born 1978) is a former journalist and author of the Disturbed Girl series of novels. His experiences while working on a local newspaper in Essex, England, and on national newspapers in London, inspired the adventures of anti-hero Hannah Harker in the novels. Howell’s debut, A Disturbed Girl's Guide to Curing Boredom, follows the story of local reporter Harker as she gradually grows insane in her quest to find excitement at all costs. Published by Amygdala Press in 2011, the debut is a "harrowing, savage and sexual exploration of a broken mind" and has attracted nearly 50,000 Facebook fans. In January 2013 it was named 7th in Really TV's top 10 must-read erotic novels of all time. The sequel, A Disturbed Girl Implodes, continues Hannah's demented adventures and was published by Amygdala Press in May 2012. The final part of the trilogy, A Disturbed Girl’s Redemption, was published in autumn 2013 to huge acclaim from fans globally. In late 2012, London-based electronic music artist Mush No Candy collaborated with Howell and produced a unique soundtrack to accompany the novels, which was the subject of a BBC radio programme. Aside from writing, Howell is a keen diver, amateur sailor, abysmal skier and occasional romantic. He has travelled extensively in the pursuit of fortune and glory, with extended periods in South America, India and Asia, but finds himself always returning home to the shores of Southend-on-Sea in the UK.
