Overview

Nine tales of love, death, vengeance and murder.

He got to keep the minivan, but lost the family he bought it for. But sometimes, murder is a cheaper solution than divorce…

A travelling salesman vanishes, leaving behind a wife, two children, countless lonely housewives and his hat floating in a stream. But what really happened to Jack Bryce?

A foundling, a newborn, abandoned and left to die. But tonight, he will have his revenge on the parents who deserted him. Tonight, they will pay, at the very place where the story once began, at Lovers' Ridge…

Thirty years ago Jimmy Donnelly was sent to prison. Now he's free again and eager to finally avenge himself on the man who put him behind bars. But thirty years is a long time. And sometimes, it's too late for vengeance.

You don't want to owe a favour to the mafia, especially not when the boss himself comes to collect. But what could a hairdresser possibly have to offer to the mob?

Jack Slater is the worst sort of criminal scum, a pursesnatcher who hangs out on cemeteries to relieve old ladies of their handbags. But when he snatches Eudora Pennington's purse, Jack gets more than he bargained for.

She'd seen something she shouldn't have. He was commanding of the death squad sent to eliminate her. But one look into each other's eyes changed both their lives…

Peter Simmons was a man of roaming hands, who wouldn't take "no" for an answer, a man who took whatever he wants, whether it's cookies from a jar or the single Mom who moved in next door. But sometimes, getting caught with a hand in the wrong cookie jar can be deadly…

Waiting for your boyfriend to finally come home from work can be hell, especially if it's your anniversary and you suspect he forgot – again. But does the ringing of the doorbell promise roses and sex and the long overdue proposal or something far more sinister?

A collection of nine short crime tales of 18800 words altogether.
