This was GREAT. I enjoyed the short stories tremendously. The strong female characters were a delight. I found myself getting frustrated with some of the endings because they didn't end the way that I wanted them to. However, that was one of the joys of this book. There are twist and turns that you don't expect and some of them will just plain piss you off.
The supernatural has always been a joy of mines and this book packs plenty of it in new and interesting ways. The author clearly did his research on Chicago, and even on the biological aspects of the human body.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good read.
