I'm a hugh Pronzini fan. I've read all of his "nameless" books, his stand alone novels, and those he wrote in partnership with his wife. I've also read and enjoyed a few of his other compilations of short stories. These "Night Freight" stories, however, are lacking. They all build to a predictable and bland ending. Not Pronzini's best. I'm glad it was being offered at a special price when I bought it. These were stories that might have been better left unpublished.
I love short stories, but I didn't love this collection. I found the stories quite boring and after five I gave up. They seemed to have possibility when each started, but they lacked substance and faded out to nothing. I'm sorry but I would not recommend this book.
