What Leads A Man to Murder by Joslyn Chase is a collection of twelve short stories in a different format from what I usually see. I am one of those annoying readers who will even comment on a Table of Content page, as I am about to do. The structure of this TOC page is unusual. There is a story title, followed by a passage of several lines that gives the reader an idea of what the story will be about. The way this passage is broken into jagged lines made me think that at first, I was looking at ...more

Another favourite is Jhumpa Lahiri.

Joslyn stories are mostly predictable, non-engaging and lack lustre. The title is misleadi

This is a collection of short stories which contains thrillers as well as mysteries. Each story is unique in its own way and I enjoyed reading them.

What a wonderful collection of short crime stories. Ms Chase brings her characters strength through her stories. She makes you feel the problems and needs of her characters lives. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of stories.
