More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
California locales, quaintly dated pulp prose, and non-surprise surprise endings mark this collection of four stories and a novella, in which middle-class vigilantes avenge the death of a fiancee ("Death Is a Lonely Lover") and a cuckolded father ("The Last Witness"); a cabbie with a gambling addiction loses big ("Never Come Back"); a counterfeiter and a con artist are outswindled by Colby's serial sleuth T.C. Brock ("Paint the Town Green"); and lust personified by a chestnut-haired tootsie in a sparkly gold swimsuit gets gutted by a mesmerized lover and his dowdy partner while their co-vacationers mourn the loss of their sexual obsessions (the 175-page "Deadly Desire"). Colby's moral code, syntax, and penchant for last-page twists recall middling mystery writers of the '30s. Skippable by all but Black Mask devotees.

    engaging crime suspense anthology

    This suspense anthology consists of an interesting novella (Deadly Desire) and four short stories. Deadly Desire engages the reader from the start as the occupants of a Malibu beach complex consisting of six units look at each other with fear while trying to determine which among them killed. Think of Agatha Christie¿s AND THEN THERE WAS NONE to grasp the essence of this strong tale though a novella, readers will understand and delineate the cast, which adds tension and leaves the audience guessing who is the killer. <P>The four short stories also provide plenty of suspense, but not quite at the level of the novella. With the exception of the title (The Last Witness is one of the short stories included in this collection), fans of crime thrillers will enjoy Robert Colby¿s five star compilation. <P>Harriet Klausner
