5.0 out of 5 stars A collection well worth having, March 28, 2012
This review is from: Mystery Writers of America Presents Vengeance (Hardcover)
I like a good short story. My problem with many anthologies is just how uneven they often are. Indeed, frequently, I use anthologies on a "just-in-case" basis--just in case I find myself with a few minutes here or there and I want to occupy those few minutes without becoming too engrossed. That was not how I read this anthology. I ended up reading it like a good novel, turning from one story to the next, looking forward to what I might find.

This collection makes my list of favorites. Yes, it has some of my favorite authors--and that was one of the main reasons I picked it up (the other being the Mystery Writers of America). And the contributions by those authors help make this book a great read.. But, I had the pleasure of reading authors new to me, and enjoying them all. Putting it simply, these are great stories all tied (very differently) to a common theme. This is not a "just-in-case" collection at all, but a book that I found very hard to out down--and, in fact, did not until I finished it.

Putting it simply, these are great stories all tied (very differently) to a common theme. This is not a "just-in-case" collection at all, but a book that I found very hard to put down--and, in fact, did not until I finished. Highly recommended by The Mystery Bookstore Los Angeles.
