REVIEW: I’m a big fan of Sue Coletta. Her crime thrillers are
and she puts a huge amount of research into her work… Forensics & Anatomy to name just a couple of the areas she explores. I find her main works to be something like a cross between the psychological thriller and CSI. I can’t wait for her next instalment of the Mayhem series.
That said, I was quite disappointed with this small collection of tales. As a writer of flash fiction and short stories I completely understand the problems with character development and depth so neither of these were an issue. My real issue is the stories simply came across as excerpts from her thrillers, and as they were so graphic and compact, they were hard to digest. They would however be fine as part of larger works where there is plenty of build up and some kind of solution.
I was given a free copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
