An anthology of seven short stories:

* “The Desert Here and the Desert Far Away” (nominated for Thriller and Macavity Awards)
* “The Days When You Were Anything Else”
* “No One”
* “Gravity and Need”
* “As Breathing”
* “Cobalt”
* “The Time Before the Last”

These stories of men and women pushed to—and beyond—the ragged edge demonstrate why National Public Radio declared Sakey writes “crime drama for the 21st century.”

“Author-narrated titles can be hit or miss. This one hits the bull’s-eye. Bestselling crime novelist Marcus Sakey delivers the seven stories in this collection, bringing out their powerful images and psychological complexity with an intense yet conversational narration. Listeners are drawn into each unique story and main character. Sakey’s skillful approach to pacing and emphasis enhances the listening experience. In a short story, every word matters. Sakey delivers on each one. K.C.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine”

As a fan of short stories, I jumped on this collection! I've read Sakey's novel The Amateurs and knew I would enjoy this collection. I'd also read a couple of the stories previously in other anthologies - "Sex, Thugs, and Rock & Roll" & "Thriller 2: Stories You Just Can't Put Down"! This collection is only available here as an ebook, which I don't own, but I was able to download it in a PDF form elswhere, search and you shall find. The collection includes seven stories: The Days When You Were Anything Else - a great story about a father's love for his daughter, no matter how strained their relationship As Breathing - good story, great ending Gravity and Need - a tale of love, choices and consequences with some serious twist The Time Before Last - a one sentence story (literally) No One - another gripping tale of love lost and regret Cobalt - Y2K and dotcom millionaires The Desert Here and the Desert Far Away - the best story in the collection, a very fine piece about the war over there, the choices made and the choices made at home, 5 star quality There is also a bonus section after the stories, with a brief introduction by the author for each of his other four novels and excerpts from each. A sneak peek chapter at his next novel is provided as well. The stories have a little bit of everything - love, grief, need and cover a wide range of topics - family, friends, Y2K and the things you do to survive. I would like to see this collection and a few new stories added in put out in print, I think it would do well! Enjoy~
