I found Patrick C. Greene's Dark Destinies to be genuinely engaging. Each tale skillfully casting me into a frightful pool of human and not so human peril.
Mr. Greene's ability to swiftly and thouroughly contruct his characters is clever and has a crafty flair for aberrant altruism! From the packaging designer, the real estate agent and the delinquents; to the bestfriends, the boxer, the teacher and finally, Bill; you cannot help but attend to their cause, as bizarrely morose and macabre as they may be!
I would have to say that Room 422 became my favorite, giving me a unique view of how one modest man is forced to traverse with evolution! A grandiose description, but hey, I really liked it! Kudos to a wonderful job of leaving me wanting more!
I have become a fast fan of Mr. Greene and I am looking forward to more from his smartly lurid imagination!
