Finished this a couple of weeks ago... an AWESOME read! Out of the 31 stories, there were only two I didn't really care for, but please don't take that as a criticism of the stories... they just weren't for me. If I don't like a story or feel it was somehow deficient, I will tell you why. I am very glad I ponied up the $$ for this anthology... a great collection of writers and some really amazing stories. I'm not going to say that they gave me any ideas... that would be self-incrimination, wouldn't it... I mean, if I were somehow to become a suspect in the untimely demise of a certain individual... right? LOL!! I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of shorts and it has inspired me to try my hand at a hitman tale; something I have thought about before, but just never got the steam up...

A great read... heartily recommend to all!

Just read Jeff Abbott's SEIZE YOUR FUTURE... moral of this story... when a woman asks you to kill her husband says she will split the money with you... it ain't happening... run! We don't leave witnesses! This one was a bit predictable, in what Gina was going to do... but it was still an enjoyable read."
