Injustices, big and small, surround each of us every day. But what can one person do? Plenty, in these stories of vengeance and betrayal—whether it's a cheating spouse, a prostitute who's had enough, or a bookkeeper who decides to stick it to "the man." Ten twisted tales of mystery, deceit, family secrets, murder and even some aliens thrown in for good measure will have you cheering for the bad guys to get their just desserts.
PRAISE FOR BV LAWSON'S MYSTERIES IN CRIME TIME:
"Now this story was close to brilliance.... loved the concept of this story. The main character was truly three-dimensional, a noteworthy feat especially in a short story. The plot was fast, dark and thrilling. I had a hunch halfway through about what would happen, and I was right, but that didn’t make the reading experience any less pleasant. The writing was fluent and the story intriguing, and I loved the end." - IHeartReading.net
"Kept me guessing until the very end. I’d recommend this book to experienced mystery readers who enjoy wrestling with skillfully placed hints that don’t easily reveal their secrets." - Long and Short Reviews
"We've had the pleasure of reading these tales and can enthusiastically recommend them." - Omnimystery News
"...One of the best shorts I've read this year. Scary and triumphant in the bleakest kind of way with two of the best characters I've read. - AJ Hayes, author of the Mad Dog and Englishman series
"Awesome story. Beautifully written...you have really written something special." - Terrie Farley Moran, author of the Read ’Em and Eat Café and Bookstore series
