The Night Awakens is an anthology of shorts stories by different authors. They are well done, sprinkled with madness and love.

The other is about an underpaid employee who is abused by his boss and how with a witch helps him get the upper hand. Overal ...more
A collection of mystery short stories: some very amusing and some fall flat. An interesting read all in all.

Recommends it for: cozy mystery readers
I liked the authors in this anthology, read like old school mysteries, right to the point, solid storylines, and very little romance to take away from the plot. A good book to read when you're in a reading rut or can't decide what to read next.
a great compilations of different writers in mystery-murder genre that introduced by the mystery-suspense queen writer- Ms. Mary Higgins Clark..^_^..hope you like it because I really do..<3..
A pretty good collection of short stories introduced by Mary Higgins Clark. I especially enjoyed "All You Need Is Love" by Sarah Shankman.

A collection of short stories by various authors. Very disappointed. None of the authors have the depth or talent of Mary Higgins Clark.

It was ok. It was a good book for me to read at the time as work was very busy and the stories were short.
I enjoyed this collection of short stories, all by authors I had never read before.
