The anthology consists of three short stories plus a bonus story. The first is about an author who descends into madness. The second details killings at a hospital, where nearly everyone has a potential motivation to kill. The third combines the seedy underworld with one of mankind's oldest motivations to commit murder. All three stories have red herrings among the suspects, people I really wanted to be the killers but who weren't.
All three stories also share a common detective team that's working the cases. I thought this was a great idea, because there were characters I could take with me from story-to-story and learn more about while I met the flawed people and glimpsed the broken worlds of those involved in the murders. The detectives, Frank and Lewis, were colorful and unique, and they didn't fall prey to the stereotypical detectives I've read in other books. I loved their exchanges and how Fairchild portrayed the connection they had from years of working together while maintaining each man's unique perspectives. I found myself grinning every time Frank came along in the story.Read more ›
The Series introduces the investigators and my only complaint that for a short story there were too many murders.
The Doctor has a young physican in a contrepts as too many of his patients are ending up death.
The Bouncer is my favorite. Aspiring singer, Bobby Crane is waiting in the wings for his chance on stage when the police pull him in for questioning about the death of a man he visit earlier in the day.
Good police procedurals that will keep you guessing.

Alicia Fairfield is a bestselling murder/mystery author. Regrettably for her, there is a bizarre turn of events when she discovers someone is actually committing the murders she writes about in her books. She is devastated and tries to cope with a situation that endlessly haunts her. The direction this story takes will keep you speculating until the very end.
Dr. Russell Morgan is a well-respected yet narcissistic Doctor who has the misfortune of finding his patient dead in his hospital bed under suspicious circumstances. Because the patient was terminally ill this was thought to be some type of mercy killing. When another patient turns up dead and his only ailment is a broken leg, the enormity of the situation is realized and the hunt for a killer begins.
Bobby Crane is finally getting the big break he has been waiting for. In minutes he will be taking the stage to sing in public for the first time thus making his dreams a reality. As he is being introduced he is tapped on the shoulder by police detective John Lewis who wants to discuss a murder. Allen Schaffer was brutally murdered and Bobby is abruptly thrust into the investigation because his car was seen at the scene earlier that day. The investigation will take them to a conclusion that is totally unexpected.Read more ›
