Publisher's Summary

Who knew death could be so eclectic?

Relish this mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up of short stories.

Murder and mystery have been the staple of literature and films for years. This anthology of short stories will thrill and entertain you. Some will also make you laugh out loud. Others will stop and make you think.

Think of this murder mystery short story anthology as an audiobook version of appetizers or starters, hors d'oeuvre, meze, or antipasti. It can be enjoyed as fillers between books or, as is the case in some countries, as a bookish meze - in its own right.

There’s murder mystery styles and locations to suit all tastes: detective fiction, serial killers, scifi, histfic, England, Los Angeles, San Francisco, the Great Lakes, Las Vegas, the Nevada desert, Mexico, and more in an exquisite exposition of the art of short story telling.

These stories come from an international cast of authors: some with best-selling books, others emerging or new talents. Their roots, cultures, and life experiences are as diverse as their writing styles.

But one thing binds them together: They know how to tell a story.

The 10 authors who have contributed to the anthology are:

Stephen Bentley

Greg Alldredge

Kelly Artieri

Robbie Cheadle

Michael Spinelli

L. Lee Kane

Kay Castaneda

Aly Locatelli

Justin Bauer

Posthumously by "G"

The stories include the 2019 SIA Award-winning murder mystery short story "The Rose Slayer" by Stephen Bentley.

Each author introduces his or her stories and the theme that lays behind them. By the time you finish the audiobook, you will agree the result is a mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up.

Another well-written story from a very good author

Death Among Us: An Anthology of Murder Mystery Short Stories, my third highly enjoyable read from author Stephen Bentley, An author I'd not heard of before getting the opportunity to read & review these books! December seemed to be my month for new authors, January continued the trend, and now February. An enjoyable, well-written collection. I’m not big on short stories but this collection has given me some more interesting new authors to research & potentially read. Ralph Scott & Kendra Murray’s narration adds greatly to a good book's enjoyment. “I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review." I own 8 other books by this author and look forward to reading more from this him. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

A fun mix of murders, characters and locations.

The narrators, Ralph Scott and Kendra Murray, did an excellent job performing this book. I especially enjoyed the voice of Ralph. He reminded me, at times, of Rod Sterling of the Twilight Zone and sometimes Sergeant Friday of Dragnet. (Guess that dates me.) Because of that, I expected there to be more of a twist at the end of these short stories. I felt let down and cheated that they were over so soon! It was very fun to have such a mix of murders, gore, characters and locations. I plan to hang on to this Audiobook and listen to the stories more individually and ponder over them. I had to listen to the whole book so I could leave this voluntary review.

A little bit of something for everyone.

I really like short stories. This book is full of them. Perfect for starting the book and taking extended breaks in between stories.

Short Stories Involving Murder

This is a collection of short stories that the subject matter involves murder. I think that writing a short story that presents a cohesive and total picture with a minimum number of words can be very difficult and therefore I found this collection to be amazing. I liked that there was a brief introduction about the writer before the presentation of their stories. Each story was different. I liked some of the stories better than others, but I found each one to be unique. Both Ralph Scott and Kendra Murray were great narrators adding entertainment to the story whenever each narrated. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.
