    I love short story books, and this one really keeps you reading. Not my usual genre, but decided to broaden my mind. I was thrilled I took the extra step. B.J. Myrick's literary style and Hazel Hart's more casual style give the best of both worlds. Images and reactions are used brilliantly to create suspense and take you to the dark side of life. A really great purchase and I received 10 stories for the price of $1.99. Wonderful and entertaining.
