it was ok
bookshelves: zoë-sharp

I would probably give this 2.5 stars as I cannot honestly say I 'liked' it, though parts were well-written (though really, how possible is it to like vengeance as such?). I read it primarily for the short story by Zoë Sharp, which was clever, with a razor-sharp edge and less than divine retribution that ironically was true justice.

I like Lee Child as well, and the short story he wrote was ironic, a really cold vengeance. It was good to reconnect with Harry Bosch as I haven't read Michael Connelly for a long while.

Some were just chilling and quite frankly left me with an awful taste in my mouth - though cleverly written, a couple I didn't get, and it's a useful look at new to me authors, some I may follow up. I can read stories with a somewhat nasty twist as long as justice is involved.... though I stopped reading this book for a while.
