The stories are very imaginative and incorporate the theme of time and crime well. Anthologies are always interesting, as each of the authors have their own unique voices. Reading some of these stories may prompt one to investigate other books written by these authors. Recommended for those who enjoy short stories with a murder/mystery theme.
A Stitch in Crime by Gwen Gardner ....... enjoyable enough, cross stitching and hauntings, a sweet shop with a disturbed spirit and a connection to an orphanage and a kindly old nun.
Gussy Saint and the Case of the Missing Coed by C.D. Gallant-King ..... an ex-boxer PI and a dame with a family grudge
The Tide Waits by Rebecca M. Douglass ...... a barkeeper crosses proverbial swords with the Lord of the Manor, time and tide wait for no man
The Little Girl in the Bayou by J. R. Ferguson Cypress .... a child in jeopardy, an indifferent police force and a man whose conscience won't let it go. Harsh, unforgiving, brutal but a story with a heart.
Like the Tree by Yolanda Renée .... a messy end to an unhappy marriage, the merry widow gets her happy ever after - cleverly plotted - possibly my favourite in the collection
Reset by Tara Tyler ..... a bit of time travel to right a wrong.
Three O’Clock Execution by Samantha Betler (S. R. Betler) ..... death row answers - but no stay of execution
Center Lane by Christine Clemetson ..... corporate fraud, a patsy, a dirty cop, payback - all slightly confusing if I'm honest
One More Minute by Mary Aalgaard ...... domestic strife and an unforeseen end to a couple of relationships, taut and tense storytelling
Heartless by C. Lee McKenzie.... a mad abductor and murderer and a rescue during the great Chicago Fire of 1871
Until Release by Jemi Fraser ...... a count down to a killer's release and the welcoming party waiting to greet him. Thoughtful and tense, a great finish to the collection.
Like any collection there were a few stories with outcomes that give pause for thought and a couple that kind of passed me by. All of them have a time theme in the backdrop, some so subtly presented you almost wouldn't know it was there. In others the ticking of the clock was more imperative.
