Short stories of crime and the paranormal from 20 authors who belong to Mystery Writers of America...There was enough variety throughout the collection for everyone to find something to like. Jeff Cummings and Natalie Ross did an excellent job with the narration. I would have thought there was a cast of readers.read more

This was the best short story I've seen from Charlaine Harris, and the most interesting writing I've read of hers in a while. Although it dealt with a new character, it was tight, compelling, and she didn't rely on established characters to tell a story. Nicely done.

Out of the other stories, some were better than others. I didn't skip any completely, but did skim through a couple.

A quick note on the format I read this in--never again will I read a collection of short stories by various authors on my Sony eReader. I've discovered that I really like to browse around, flip back and forth, and skip stories I'm not enjoying. For some reason this just wasn't happening in a useful way as an ebook. I'm also having trouble remembering the stories themselves--which authors did I want to find more from? No idea.read more

This book of short stories is one of the best groupings of stories by various authors I've read. Crime writers taking a paranormal approach, I really enjoyed every single entry. I felt Ms. Harris had the weakest entry of the bunch; and I got to read things from people I might not have normally given a second glance to. This book really kept my interest and pulled me along. Very good.read more

I should have written the review as soon as I finished the book. All I remember now is that this anthology tended to be much, much darker than most of the ones I read! I'd classify this volume as horror rather than dark fantasy, and paranormal romance fans should probably just skip it altogether even if they do see familiar authors' names. I should have skipped it, and I wasn't reading for any romance. I'm still shivering!

A book of short stories concerning crime and the supernatural. Among the authors are Charlaine Harris, Max Allen Collins, Barbara D'Amato, and Margaret Maron. There was enough spread in topic to find a story that pleases.I recommend this book.

Some very good stories collected in this anthology. Unfortunately for all the Charlaine Harris fans, hers wasn't one of them. Lou Kemp, Max Allan Collins with Mickey Spillane, Barbara D'Amato were all amazingly good.
