This set of 5 tales from the noir school of crime and mystery highlights the dark spot on the human psyche that haunts people with the siren call of revenge, destruction, or ill-gotten gain. Here are featured a variety of characters and crimes, with different outcomes. Everything from cool, calculating killers to tortured souls caught in a net of circumstance beyond their control. Plotted heists, schemes, and cons, along with acts of passion committed in the heat of the moment.
I liked these stories because they were short and to the point. No words wasted. Great endings with each story better than the one before. Mr. Wolinsky reads clearly and smoothly.
As for the stories themselves excellent. But then I am partial to short stories. Thanks Mr. Phillips.
