I received an ARC for this review, but I made it very clear I'd provide an honest opinion. I'm happy to say that I loved this distinctive collection of
four unique voices, which covers everything from mystery to history. In "The Reiger File" by Jennifer Leeper, a young detective-in-trainings youthful passion takes him on a journey better left untaken. In "A Night with Kali" by Rita Banerjee, a taxi driver in Kolkata, India, tells a ghost story to his curious passenger. In "Brave Enough to Follow

This anthology of novellas effectively combines suspense with provocative social issues. A creepy piece by Donna Hill is a standout. You’ll love the diversity of the novellas plus the bonus flash fiction pieces, which feature strong female protagonists. All in all, another winning collection from Spider Road Press. Easy to see why these collections are award winners.

The story "136 Auburn Lane" was the most suspenseful of the four suspense stories. The others were well written but lacked the page-turning impulse. I really liked the Flash Fiction at the back of the book. Every bit of these were full of suspense. ...more

Really short stories, some with a twist in the tail.

Some of these tales left me wanting to know more, what happens next?, Does it all work out in the end? Others leave you with the knowledge that everything will be fine for the main character. My favourites were 136 Auburn Lane by Donna Hill, Fuzzy Dice by Kathryn Kulpa, Kit-cat Clock by Patricia Flaherty Pagan and Because the Sky is Blue by Andrea Barbosa. There are many other good pieces of work here that other readers may prefer, it's worth a

The four novellas in "Approaching Footsteps" couldn't be more different, you can tell they were written by four different writers. And yet, all of these stories were suspenseful in nature and featured a female protagonist that I connected with. The bonus flash fiction at the back was unexpected, a terrific surprise. Such a fantastic representation of modern, women writers. ...more
