Review of the Amazon Original Story ebook (July 23, 2023) released simultaneously with the Brilliance Audio audiobook.

The Mosquito has a start which leads you to think it is just going to be whimsical. A man is driven to nighttime distraction by a pesky mosquito* in his room where he is vacationing with friends in France. His wife has recently left him and his sister and brother in law think the vacation will be a good distraction for him. Unfortunately, there is another single man, whose wife died recently, also on the trip. The widower becomes a pesky irritant to the single man suffering from sleep deprivation in the daytime. The tension builds to the point where something drastic is bound to happen.

Footnote
* It sounded unlikely, but looking it up I discovered that a single mosquito will feed several times on the same prey and then after laying its eggs will start the cycle again.

B.A. Paris is a psychological thriller writer who has published several novels, the most popular of which is Behind Closed Doors (2016).

Trivia and Links
The Mosquito is the 2nd of 6 short stories making up the psychological suspense series Obsession, released simultaneously on July 23, 2023 as eBooks by Amazon Originals and as audiobooks by Brilliance Audio. The Obsession collection is described as “Lust. Revenge. Greed. Hunger. Desire doesn’t care if you’re at the bottom of the ladder or the top of your game. Six masters of psychological suspense craft tales about people crossing moral lines in pursuit of their deepest desires. In these short stories, even the most mild-mannered characters can spin out of control when passion is at play. Hold on tight—there’s no turning back.”

You can watch for current and past Amazon Original Kindle short stories which are usually paired with their Audible Original narrations at an Amazon page here (Link goes to Amazon US, adjust for your own country or region). ( )

I understand the parallels that happen in this, but the ending felt wrong for the character. For the story? Yes. For the specific character? Felt inauthentic. Not a bad read but I finished it feeling unsatisfied. ( )

THE MOSQUITO is a fun story about a pesty bug and an even pestier house guest named Rupert. When I first encountered Rupert, he made me think of Colin Robinson, only without Colin's charm, lol. (Any WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS fans?) I enjoyed the symbolism in this short tale, and I especially loved the satisfying ending. ( )

After his wife leaves him, Michael agrees to take a trip to the South of France along with his sister Kate and some friends. While there he is irritated by a mosquito in his room, and a very annoying houseguest (Rupert) who keeps pestering him. A fast and twisted short story. ( )
