Publisher's Summary

From the Civil War-era south, to 1950's New York, to the present day's gritty cities and seemingly innocuous suburbs, the 18 stories in this anthology, edited by the award-winning mystery writer Harlan Coben, chart the complications - always surprising, sometimes deadly - that arise between lovers, dear friends, and even complete strangers coming together for a single, shocking encounter.In Lee Child's "Safe Enough", a blue-collar city boy takes up with a wealthy suburban wife, with dire consequences. In Harlan Coben's "Entrapped", a woman's husband disappears and is replaced by a handsome impostor. In Laura Lippman's "One True Love", a high-end prostitute seeks a radical solution to a public relations problem. Finally, in P. J. Parrish's "One Shot", a man returns to his childhood home to learn the truth about a long-ago tragedy.Other contributors of original stories include Ridley Pearson, R. L. Stine, Jim Fusilli, Jeff Abbott, Charles Todd, and Tom Savage.


Audible Editor Reviews

Eighteen fine mystery writers contribute to a collection of "love-and-hate stories" that, as editor Harlan Coben warns in the introduction, end badly for somebody. The narrators do a superb job, whether it's getting into the persona of a federal agent in "The Home Front" or a hysterical wife in Coben's "Entrapped" or setting the scene in "The Last Flight" or re-creating a tense father-son situation in "A Few Small Repairs." "Part Light, Part Memory," told by the daughter of a man lynched in 1865, will stick with listeners, as will the rat-a-tat-tat delivery of ""

Mystery Writers of America To Death us do part

I was very disappointed in the stories and the coloration of Harlen Coben with the other writers. I have read other works of Harlen Coben and enjoyed his work. I will be deleting both parts 1 and 2 from my Ipod Library and Ipod.
I will wait for my credit to add up again.
