Product Description

Product Description

Sand, sun, waves, and unforgettable holiday journeys to heavenly bodies of water and exotic homes make up the dreams of summer, right? But not with these seven tales . . . far from it. Murder, blood, and death born from deception, hate, and lust are the norm for this gathering of beach yarns. Read them in the company of the light. They will force you to thank God that such scenes live only in the minds of authors . . . or do they?

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery Anthology Real Treat 23 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This anthology of seven mystery stories by different authors is a real treat.

The common theme here is that they all take place near a body of water and a sandy beach. After reading this, you may never visit a beach again. (Just Kidding!)

The seven authors are Rebecca Stroud, Dani Amore, Gary Ponzo, Lawrence Kelter, Traci Hohenstein, Tim Ellis and Rick Murcer. As with any collection, the quality of the stories varies -- some I liked much better than others -- but none of them is bad. My favorite three were:

"A Lethal Connection" by Gary Ponzo
Detective Mike Barton and his partner Nate Jenson investigate the death of a man found among the rocks on a La Jolla, California beach. Great twist ending to this one.

"The Lighthouse" by Rick Murcer
Chase Andrews and his girlfriend, Maggie Burrows, often visited the Little Sable Point Lighthouse that was their special place. The lighthouse overlooked Lake Michigan and on their final night there tragedy strikes and life changes forever. A familiar detective from Rick's Caribbean novels makes an appearance here.

"Jinxed" by Rebecca Stroud
An excellent short story about several murders committed during spring break in Cocoa Beach, FL. in which young women are brutally stabbed to death. Police officer Scott McBride and his dog, Jinx, seek the killer and Jinx plays a key role here. Another good dog story from Rebecca who features dogs in all her books.

These are all highly enjoyable stories in the suspense/thriller category and would give Alfred Hitchcock a run for his money. Highly recommended.

I notice this book already has 10 5-star reviews on in the USA and nothing lower, so I'll add mine to make it a unanimous 11.

A good mixture of stories some with surprising endings but others more obvious but still enjoyable.
I would recommend the read.

This is the first time I have read any Rick Murcer books and the two I have read (one of short stories which I normally avoid) they were well written and absorbing.
