Three comic stories by Matthew Asprey. 'Villa des Bijoux' recounts the obsessive hunt for a location used in Alfred Hitchcock’s 'To Catch A Thief' (1955) on the Cote d’Azur. 'Gut Bucket Blues' was originally published in the Australian jazz journal Extempore. 'To Murder My Love Is A Crime!' is a noirish comedy of obsession, frustrated desire, and Mr Donut doughnuts.

Review by: Paul Samael on Feb. 08, 2012 :
I enjoyed these short stories – especially the first one, which is all about the wacky world of Hitchcock film memorabilia and has a great first person narrator. Matthew Asprey’s other ebooks – “Sonny’s Guerrillas” and “Red Hills of Africa” – are also well worth reading.
