    "They're all good stories!"

    I originally purchased this book simply because I am such a huge fan of Diana Gabaldon, one of the contributors. Turns out *all* the stories are excellent! Well worth the read.

    "Matchup review"

    I really didn't like most of the stories ...they seemed to end abruptly. But thus book might be someone else's cup of tea.

    "Fabulous authors!"

    Horrible, absolutely HORRIBLE narrators. They drone on and on with very little emotion or enthusiasm. I love Lee Child, but if he helped find these voices he really blew it. I can’t for the life of me remember what the stories were about but the book seemed to last for days and days and days...

    "Nice Mix of Stories!"

    I enjoyed all the stories. Some narrators were better than others, but none of them annoyed me. Some stories we're very short, which I found a little disappointing.

    "A wonderful series of short stories"

    This series of short stories, introduced by Lee Child, is a wonderful start to enjoying more from your favourite authors and the chance to find some new ones.
    I have added a number to my wish list and thoroughly enjoyed this romp through various types of thrillers encompassing all types within this genre.
    Leap in and find some new favourites along with your current ones!
