This was actually a rather long collection with a variety of tales ranging from novella to very short story length.
I cannot say there was a bad story among the bunch. They were kind of like R.L Stine for grownups.
The thing that I enjoyed the most was the suspenseful nature - as opposed to horror. Also the unexpected twist at the end of one or two of the tales.
Good scary reading, perfect for a night with a bowl of popcorn and a mug of hot chocolate.
Some, yeah, I'll admit, some we more noir than others. The noiricity of the stories varied, but I enjoyed all of them. I don't often partake in short fiction anthologies, but this was just the right book to make me question that decision.
Check out the opener, Patrick Flanagan's tale - my personal favourite, too. Erik T. Johnson's story was mind-blowingly good, Wine and Spirits from Gregory L. Norris - excellent. I also really enjoyed the Box of Seven Sons, by Kent Alyn, and Randy Chandler's tale, the title of which is just too damn long to type, but not too long to read.
On titles, biggest win goes to Zoot Campbell - I don't think Amazon would let me publish the title in a review!
Great collection, loved it.
Craig Saunders, Author of Spiggot, Rain, The Outlaw King, Evolution, The Seven Point Star...OK, I'll stop now. ;)
It was an easy read at the gym though. Especially since the short nature of the stories meant I could easily stop and continue later.

I expected a mystery... this is a compilation of short stories as far as I could tell. What I read was OK but I didn't finish the book.Published on June 14, 2012 by Redbird
Brilliant collection. Each story is like a quick satisfying snack. Quick paced and full of twists and turns. Best buck and a quarter I've spent!Published on March 30, 2012 by Jeff Morris
