Up until this short story I've liked everything I've read by Blake Crouch but this story was stupid. Where it all fell apart was when someone accidentally locked themselves in the back of a police cruiser. Seriously, what idiot doesn't know that you can't open the back doors from the inside especially if your brother-in-law is a cop. Even the premise of the story was bad, everything else I've read from him at least had a good story line.

I will never be a fan of stand alone short fiction. Within the covers of a collection of short stories this would be entertaining but as a stand alone it does very little for me. I definitely wouldn't spend money on a read lasting no more than a few minutes. It is entertaining and it is clever but there's not enough of it - by a long way.

Pretty good short story. Loved the Mooresville reference
*69 is another action-packed thriller from Blake Crouch. This author has the talent to fit a big story into a very few words, in such a way that it will send you looking for another story of his to read. Fortunately, when you find that next story, you will enjoy it just as much. I highly recommend anything by Blake Crouch!
It's a pretty messed up short story about a police officer who kills he own brother and sister-in-law because they accidentally discovered that he was a murderer.

Nice short story with the right level of tension to push the reader in turning pages. Nice ending. Love tales with unexpected winners.
Almost to short to even write a review. For me this was average. Not to exciting and predictable.
Nancy Castell-Stuart
Interesting little short story. Not his best, but still worth reading. Page turner.
Sarah Billington
No wonder his books are so popular. So rich with detail, and a great twist.
This short story was very good... Only the end was a little disappointing!
This was one that did make me think. "WOW" this could happen.
Quick read, entertaining, and very cool premise.
Annie Bailey
