This is one of the first crime thrillers I've read - I'm not a fan of the genre. Many of the stories were captivating, with well depicted horrible crimes and motives. Some of the stories were hard to stick with, some had good twists, some were predictable.

A good collection, some really cracking stories in here. There were a few I skipped, as always in these anthologies some stories are less appealing. NB these are crime stories not detective stories there are no whodunnits
