short stories, not by lee child

This book is a compilation of short stories from different authors. This would be ok if you are someone who can't get enough of the hooker with a heart of gold, or corrupt politician themes. Material was tired and overused. Cliche.

lackluster short stories

I was extremely disappointed with this book. It was boring from the beginning. I did give it a fair chance and got all the way through. There were 2 stories that were mildly interesting. I am a super fan of Lee Child and the other superstars who helped put this together this book. Sorry it just fell flat and was painful to listen. The narrators were also sub-standard.

Boring

Ordinary stories with lots of "F" bombs I returned this before finishing. The mystery writers stories are much better.
