A solid collection - remember not to judge a book by its cover!
on 4 January 2011
I have to start this review by saying to all those people that bought this because they saw Lee Child's name on the cover and were subsequently disappointed that this is not a Lee Child novel...seriously? It's not that hard to figure it out from Amazon's description, or from downloading and reading a free sample!
Right, now that is off my chest, this is a great collection of short stories. What I love most is that while they are all related in some way to the crime genre, they are eclectic in sub-genre, plot, era, writing style, etc. Some are really hard boiled and gritty, others are more akin to sci-fi, and others still mix in a little horror. Overall this has been a delightful read and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for short stories, new authors, or something they can simply read in bitesize pieces!
