One definition of noir is “no happy endings.” In this short story collection by award-winning author, Warren Bull, don’t expect any last-minute reprieves – it isn’t going to happen. Dark desires spiral inexorably down toward disaster. Bad choices lead to dangerous consequences, and a sucker never gets an even break.
A clergyman chosen to speak on behalf of the dead is accused of murder. An author trying to make a name for herself attracts the attention of a stalker. A police detective investigating a series of seemingly unrelated murders finds an appalling and very personal link between the crimes.
A brand-new collection of stories from the creator of Murder Manhattan Style. (Goodreads)
What a perfect little gem. The writing was excellent. The stories were so unexpected with each ending different and there was no way of knowing which direction it would go.
This is a super fast read, but with every short story completely unique and well thought out. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every story.
I highly recommend this book for mature young adults and adults who enjoy something different, at times thought provoking, with humor, mystery and horror all rolled up in well written short stories.
I loved it.
