Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on July 10, 2017
When you're browsing on Amazon, you may have noticed sidebars such as "if you like this author, you may also like". That's the premise behind this book, which is a collection of short stories written in collaboration. Perhaps you're a fan of John Sandford, as I am. So I may like Jeffery Deaver. Lo and behold, there's a short story written by both, featuring each author's famed protagonist. It's a nice concept, but not as successful as one might wish. The short story format isn't sufficient to offer any depth to the characters, so what emerges is essentially a peek at basic personality traits and writing styles. Since all the authors are known for novels, short stories sell the reader short. You really can't get a good feel for whether you'd enjoy any of the other writers. I think this might have worked better with fewer pairs of authors and novellas instead of short stories.
