I find it harder to review a short story collection than I do a full length novel. Instead of looking at one story development and its characters it is necessary to look at and assess multiples. But here I go.

Claude Nougat, in this collection of nine stories, shows she has a nice feel for narrative and dialogue. The quality barely wavers throughout. I say 'barely' because sentence construction in 'The great hacker heist' caused me to pause and re-read, and in 'The ice maker' it was unclear to me

There were some really interesting stories in here. I enjoyed the varied settings and characters. I also liked the intensity of the stories. They were clever and interesting and well written. I also enjoyed the modern day elements. I did find a few typos, however, but I'd still recommend the book to anyone who likes slightly darker stories, mysteries, or thrillers.

Death on Facebook is the title of the first of a fascinating collection of short stories. If you appreciate irony and the macabre, you will enjoy these. The writing is spare, direct and efficient, just what is required for very short fiction with real impact. I can’t remember stories with greater punch since I last read the stories penned by the great Saki (H. H. Munro). 5 stars and highly recommended.
