Kurzbeschreibung

23. September 2014
VENGEANCE features new stories by bestselling crime writers including Lee Child, Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane, and Karin Slaughter, as well as some of today's brightest rising talents. The heroes in these stories include a cop who's seen too much, a woman who has been pushed too far, or just an ordinary person doing what the law will not. Some call them vigilantes, others claim they are just another brand of criminal. Edited and with an introduction by Lee Child, these stories reveal the shocking consequences when men and women take the law into their own hands.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vengeance 27. Oktober 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent collection of short stories related to vengeance. I really loved `The Unremarkable Heart`, it is a great and disturbing story. Of course, violence is a big part in the stories, but they are well written and entertaining. A good mix with stories for everybody.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A collection well worth having 28. März 2012
Von Kirk Pasich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I like a good short story. My problem with many anthologies is just how uneven they often are. Indeed, frequently, I use anthologies on a "just-in-case" basis--just in case I find myself with a few minutes here or there and I want to occupy those few minutes without becoming too engrossed. That was not how I read this anthology. I ended up reading it like a good novel, turning from one story to the next, looking forward to what I might find.

This collection makes my list of favorites. Yes, it has some of my favorite authors--and that was one of the main reasons I picked it up (the other being the Mystery Writers of America). And the contributions by those authors help make this book a great read.. But, I had the pleasure of reading authors new to me, and enjoying them all. Putting it simply, these are great stories all tied (very differently) to a common theme. This is not a "just-in-case" collection at all, but a book that I found very hard to out down--and, in fact, did not until I finished it.

Putting it simply, these are great stories all tied (very differently) to a common theme. This is not a "just-in-case" collection at all, but a book that I found very hard to put down--and, in fact, did not until I finished. Highly recommended by The Mystery Bookstore Los Angeles.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Two short stories were excellent - by Michael Connelly and Darrell James. Most of the rest were just ok. 4. Mai 2012
Von Jane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
MYSTERY WRITERS OF AMERICA PRESENTS VENGEANCE by various authors.

21 short stories with themes of revenge or vengeance. I hesitate to read short stories. More often than not something doesn't get developed enough - characters, motivations, plot. Some of my harsh ratings below are because of this. Those same authors would probably get a higher rating from me for their full length novels. But, it can be done. Two of the short stories were excellent. The stories below are in the same order as in the book.

3 stars. THE 14th JUROR by Twist Phelan.
Two police detectives talk to a judge. The ending was too abrupt. I wanted to see specifically what would happen to the recipient of the revenge.

1 star. LOST AND FOUND by Zoe Sharp.
This was a weird combination of second and third person point of views. "You" are being attacked. "He" is doing the attacking. Throughout the story the author switches back and forth between what "You" are thinking and feeling and what "He" is thinking and doing. I was frustrated and confused. This was too subtle for me. I didn't like the ending. I wanted to know what was going to happen to "He."

2 stars. THE MOTHER by Alafair Burke.
The main story was pretty good - 3 stars. But the ending was unfinished - 1 star. It left me hanging. A bad guy was discovered, and I have no idea what will happen with him. One storyline is who will have custody of a two-year-old girl who had been raped.

1 star. BLIND JUSTICE by Jim Fusilli.
Angie and Turnip are two guys who interact with organized crime types. Relationships could not be fully shown because there were too many characters. Motivations and actions were vague. I didn't know who did what or why. I didn't know what the bad guy did that caused a need for revenge. The revenge was referred to, not shown. At the end one guy asks "Dead or alive?" The other guy says "What do you think?" This ending was too vague.

3  stars. THE CONSUMERS by Dennis Lehane.
A broker sells bad investments causing people to lose money. He also beats his wife. The story was good until the end. A character got revenge, but I wasn't clear about his motives. I wanted to understand him better.

3 stars. MOONSHINER'S LAMENT by Rick McMahan.
Too much was too vague. I didn't see motives for Goat's actions after he left the men in the woods. Then I vaguely knew what happened to the men in the woods. I needed to know more about the bad guy's motivations and actions.

2 stars. RIVER SECRET by Anne Swardson.
A street musician sees a little girl with her mother. Too much subtlety. Not obvious enough.

3 stars. HOT SUGAR BLUES by Steve Liskow.
A lot of time was spent with things the bad guy musician did which was depressing. His victims were wimps because they were powerless or they didn't choose their actions well. Someone gets revenge which was ok, but the overall story was depressing.

3  stars. THE FINAL BALLAD by Brendan DuBois.
Good story. It's about what happens after Beth's daughter was beaten by the son of a senator.

2 stars. AFRICA ALWAYS NEEDS GUNS by Michael Niemann.
So, so. I couldn't get into the characters. An investigator needs to examine cargo. The pilot won't let him.

2 stars. THE UNREMARKABLE HEART by Karin Slaughter.
This didn't feel like revenge or vengeance. The main character is dying and her main crime was trusting someone she shouldn't have and saying some mean things to others. As a story it's ok but it's depressing about someone dying. There is a shocking surprise at the end.

2 stars. IT AIN'T RIGHT by Michelle Gagnon.
Too subtle. Don't know what happened. Joe and his wife may have done something bad. I didn't see any revenge or vengeance in this story. It's possible my mind wandered and I missed it?

3 stars. SILENT JUSTICE by C.E. Lawrence.
A killer confesses to a priest. Ok story.

4 stars. EVEN A BLIND MAN by Darrell James.
Young girl is in trouble. Her grandfather travels across the country by bus to find her and help her. He pretends to be blind, but he is not. This was very good.

2 stars. THE GENERAL by Janice Law Trecker.
Not a pleasant story. Not enjoyable. The General did evil things when he was in power which are recalled. The ending has some revenge, but it was more sad than good.

4  to 5 stars. A FINE MIST OF BLOOD by Michael Connelly.
Yay! I love Harry Bosch! This is another installment in that series. It was my favorite story in this book. Detective Bosch is investigating a murder. At first I was drawn in because I thought "how in the world is he going to catch this person?" Later there was suspense, and I was worried about Bosch. Then my favorite part was the person who got revenge - that was a surprise. I didn't expect it. And, we had a complete ending. So to Michael Connelly, thank you, you write so well!

3 stars. LEVERAGE by Mike Cooper.
The subject matter was depressing. Much of the story is about employees of a company being terminated and losing their pensions. One of the employees wants to do something about it. It was ok, but I didn't feel much. At least the ending was complete.

3 stars. THE HOTLINE by Dreda Say Mitchell.
Ruckshana wears a Muslim head scarf when working at the bank. Her boss lies to her and is behind her firing. It's an ok story.

3 stars. BLOOD AND SUNSHINE by Adam Meyer.
It was ok but odd. I was frustrated that the author didn't say what happened to the baby. I'm still troubled by that. Eddie is a college student working at a day care center/camp for kids during the summer. Dillon is a five-year-old who is sneaky and evil. This is a dark story. The good guy gets revenge but did something evil to get it. It left me with an unsettled feeling.

3 stars. IN PERSONA CHRISTY by Orest Stelmach.
Maria and her son Manuel flee Mexico and live with a priest in a Connecticut parish. Her husband was killed by bad guys. Several years earlier Father Nathan lost his right arm and right leg and wears prosthetics. The ending was pretty good about someone saving the day and getting some revenge.

3 stars. THE HOLLYWOOD I REMEMBER by Lee Child.
The main character is a killer for hire. He kills prostitutes who threaten to talk/blackmail their clients. Someone wants revenge and to see him in jail. The revenge he gets is unexpected. This was ok at best.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lee Child should stick with writing & forget editing 27. Januar 2014
Von Aussiebooklover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Having just worked my way through all the Jack Reachers I was suffering from Lee Child withdrawal, so I thought I'd give this a go. Unfortunately, it was a bit disappointing. In his introduction, Child writes quite entertainingly about selecting his "fantasy baseball team" of writers, who all agreed to contribute and then "it was about sharpening [his] editorial blue pencil and waiting for their stories to show up". According to Child, the stories didn't require much in the way of editing, and this may well have been the case. But the collection as a whole could have done with a bit of judicious editing. At least, I certainly felt they did when I came to the fourth story about child molesters. There were some excellent stories - Dennis Lehane's The Consumers and Dreda Say Mitchell's The Hotline were my favourites - but too many featured plain old murder as revenge, which is a bit pedestrian and some, like "It Ain't Right" by Michelle Gagnon could have been excised entirely. Quite a few stories had very predictable endings and the ones involving priests (of which there were several) made the mistake of assuming priests have nothing better to do than sit around in the confessional all day on the off-chance that someone might walk in! But these are minor quibbles. Individually, most of the stories range from good to excellent, but as an anthology, they get a bit repetitive. Lee Child's own contribution is fair, but maybe a tad underwhelming for his many Reacher fans.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Read the small print 19. November 2013
Von bronwen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Very disappointing. I felt the short stories would reflect the author's genre and writing style - they don't, they are all so different. Some readers might find this refreshing, I recommend reading closely the finer print, I saw Lee Child and just went straight ahead and bought it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Snippets of pleasure 23. April 2013
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not usually an anthology reader; I find that 1 or 2 really good authors rarely make up for the 13 or so that you get as filler. This is different. I was looking for a new author with a series I could get into. Here I found a few. Even the stories that are not "my cup of tea" were entertaining and thought provoking.
