4.0 von 5 Sternen An interesting premise entertainingly carried out 7. Februar 2004
Von Aaron B. Larson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
You might think you can tell what you are going to get when first you see the cover of WHO DIED IN HERE? - but no, there's not a stinker in the bunch!
What you get in this new anthology are twenty-five stories of crimes and bathrooms written by up-and-coming mystery writers from every corner of the USA (and the UK). The litany of crimes recorded range from the simply hilarious to the seriously horrendous.
Among the most outstanding in the volume are tales by veteran mystery author R.T. Lawton and relative newcomer Lori G. Armstrong. Lawton's story, "Flying Without A Parachute", leads off the book with a drug raid and a man without a towel to throw in. Armstrong's "Praying to the Porcelain God" is an unforgettably grim telling of a relationship gone wrong.
This anthology would be the perfect companion, whether you are curled up in front of a winter fire, or sitting alone in the room where only air fresheners go unafraid.
Copies are streaming out of bookstores everywhere, so you better roll and get yours today.
It would be a crime to miss it...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Did you do this? "Who Died In Here?" 23. Oktober 2004
Von Kevin Tipple - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
2004 seems to have been the year of the anthology. Not only do I have several to read and review in my stack, I receive several queries and proposals concerning anthologies to be reviewed a week. However, few if any, have such a unique and laugh out loud premise.

Combining a lament heard in bathrooms and adjoining bedrooms across the country, if not the world, with crime and often murder, the resulting twenty-five stories are well worth the read. Some are downright funny from start to finish while others border on the twisted side of looking at life and death. Some readers might even find them perverse. And while each story selected by editor Pat Dennis, who also contributes one (more on that later), are good, I don't have the space here to go into all of them. So here are several in no special order, other than the order they were presented in the book that really made an extra impression on me.

"Nothing Good Ever Came Of A Bad Hair Day by Kris Neri (page 16) tells of the ultimate revenge plot against a certain hairdresser. Image is everything and for the narrator lawyer, a bad style is unacceptable.

"What David Was Doing When The Lights Went Out" by Ben Vincent (page 67) uses the widespread blackout of last year as the setting for his story. It is a bad thing to try to commit murder and to be interrupted by a power failure. They just don't make hair dryers like they used to.

Payback, a theme used often in the anthology, is the theme for the story "One For The Road" by Pat Dennis (Page 79). "Jenkin's Service Station specialized in fixing unnecessary repairs on RV's driven by seniors." Two can play that game.

Then there is "Port-O-Prince" by R. J. Mills, (page 102) where the ultimate resting place for the recently deceased is a unique place. Sometimes your coworkers know you better than you know yourself.

Also included in this very enjoyable anthology are stories by R. T. Lawton, Thomas Bray, Terry Burlison, Michael Giorgio, Nick Andreychuk, Mike Befeler, Peggy Jaegly, Stephen D. Rogers, Michael Learmond, Kevin Carollo, David Dumitru, Beverle Graves Myers, Jeremy Yoder, James C. Wardlaw, Donna Sundblad, Sandra Levy Ceren, Lori G. Armstrong, A. S. Berman, Lance Zarimba, Joan Hall Hovey, and Dean Johnson. While I did not go into detail about their stories, that should not be construed as a negative reflection on their work. Far from it as there is not a bad story in this 190-page anthology. It is all good.

As noted on the back cover, "Twenty-five mystery stories of crimes and bathroom ranging from zany to deadly serious, by some of today's finest short story writers." That pretty much sums it up and makes this book well worth reading. Whether you read in the bathroom or not, remember, please leave the fan on.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mystery, murder and mayhem! 8. September 2005
Von Armchair Interviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Who Died in Here? is a short-story collection of 25 mystery stories of crimes and bathrooms. These stories are edgy, sometimes gritty, contain lots of humor and some horror! You're gonna love 'em.

Every woman who has ever entered (and been abused) at the hair salon will love Kris Neri's, "Nothing Good Ever Came of a Bad Hair Day." I felt guilty giggling so much. Pat Dennis' "One For The Road" will make you think twice about wanting to buy cars, RVs or other motorized vehicles on a Sunday. Peggy Jaegly's "Wash Away My Sin" will make you wary of visiting old friends. You might want to cast a look around for a hidden camera. And in "Sweet Smell of Success," Beverle Graves Myers gives new meaning to the phrase, "the wrath of a woman scorned."

The creativity of people committing crimes never fails to amaze me. I should think there will be a woman or two 'out there' who might have her 'creative side' kick into gear.

Armchair Interviews says: There's a lot more mystery murder and mayhem served up in Who Died Here? And you'll want to read them all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An eyebrow-raising, tongue in cheek collection 8. März 2004
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Compiled and edited by Pat Dennis, Who Died In Here? is a bizarre but thoroughly fun anthology of 25 short stories of mystery, murder, and crime by a wide variety of skilled storytellers... and every whodunit is connected somehow to bathrooms. An eyebrow-raising, tongue in cheek collection for mystery lovers who don't mind a little (or a lot) of bodily humor/irony to round out their leisure reading shelf. The tales are brief yet engaging enough that Who Died In Here? is in fact perfect for reading when one is personally parked upon the "porcelain throne" and in need of light entertainment.
