Overview

When M. Steven Prescott leaves his law office for the day, he's unaware of the terrifying life-and-death struggle awaiting him between his floor and the lobby of his building in "Loose Ends." Other short stories include "I'd Rather Be Lucky," where a proverbial good woman stands by and counsels her man as he tries to solve a series of crimes; "The Naked Banker," the coming-of-age story of an on-again, off-again relationship; "Princess Pamela and the Blind Hog," in which a tormented man works to rid himself of a haughty wife in a most unusual way; "Gas Pains," where the tables are turned on an assistant district attorney, and other flights of fiction. Each tale has a twist of mystery, some laced with humor and romance. Love some of the characters, laugh with others, cry with some, and even hate a few. A great, entertaining read with an eclectic mix of storylines.

    This is a very entertaining book, which I enjoyed thoroughly. Though not set in the English counrtyside, it reads much like a Miss Marple cozy with colourful characters throughout. The dialogue is both humourous and insightful into the characters' mindsets. One story leaves the reader yearning for a resolution, but I understood the irony of the matter. A great variety of story themes from a single author. A very good read which I would and shall recommend to my family, friends, and acquaintances.

    This book is a great read. I found the book when I was looking

    This book is a great read. I found the book when I was looking for something to read during some "me" time. The book lived up to its billing. Particularly enjoyable was the fact that these stories could be read in one sitting if one so desired. The storylines are different enough to hold your interest. A few unexpected twists and turns in some of the stories added to my reading pleasure. The character development was so vivid that I still have images of some of them in my mind! Humor and romance were mixed in throughout the book, and this made for an even more enjoyable reading experience. The author seemed to mix life experiences with a great imagination. All in all, a great read and well worth it!
