Review by: Dale T. Phillips on Sep. 11, 2012 : star star star star
In this collection of short fiction, author Katherine Tomlinson gives us unsettling tales of urban noir, dark little twisted strands of pain. She explores the nightmare side of life through mayhem, loss and longing.

The stories are short, like tiny nicks with a sharp razor, and they'll leave their marks on your mind in the same way. The fates of most of these folks are grim and gritty, for the deserving and undeserving alike.

If you like the dark corners of the human existence, if you like to shudder while you read, this collection is for you. Come take a walk down a dangerous alley, and embrace the pain.
