Book Description

This collection of crime fiction by some of the West Coast's best mystery writers will immerse the reader in a rich palette of colors that paints a broad mosaic of crime along the Pacific Rim. Running the length of the western edge of the country from Alaska to SoCal and back, these eighteen stories make their setting yet another character in the plot.

Starting with a foreword written by legendary Irish mystery writer Ken Bruen to tightly crafted stories by best-selling authors such as David Corbett, Steve Hockensmith, Simon Wood and Terrill Lee Lankford, to exciting new voices from the likes of Scotti Andrews and Jim Thomsen, mystery fans will enjoy a collection as wide-ranging and varied as the region itself.

I didn't love all of the stories in this compilation, but I liked enough of them to make it well worth my time and money. I especially liked Steve Brewer's story.

4.0 out of 5 stars All good but one! November 1, 2011
By dyno
Format:Kindle Edition
This compilation of short stories is a very good bargain at $3.99!!!
The writing(all but one story) was very well done. The various authors make vividly sketch their characters such that the reader can identify with their varied situations. A couple of the stories were so well written, you can actually experience the increase in heart-rate as the tension builds in the story...very noteworthy considering the "let me leave nothing to your imagination" writing that is bogging down the pulp-mills of today.

A MUST READ? Only if you enjoy variety and aren't looking to throw your imagination aside to allow someone else to dictate EXACTLY what it should see...

I love twists and this collection offers up some great ones from some very divergent imaginations. I am looking forward to reading more from these authors, especially Scotti Andrews.

These stories were such a great read! Lots of creativity, diversity, and plenty of chills! I especially enjoyed Scotti Andrew's "Blind Date." Her story made me feel much better about a few blind dates I've had!
