The Road to Hell based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
All four stories were good. Well written and very quick reads. My favorites were The Solomon and Lord and A Hell of a Crime.
These short stories were very good. I liked "Development Hell" the best, but all are good.
The word "HELL" is in each of the titles of these stories, but truthfully, they're all very different. This isn't a criticism. Some of my favorite short story writers -- Stephen King, Laura Lippman -- produce radically different pieces. "The Brave One in Hell" has a 13-year-old hero and there's a moral to the nicely told tale. "Development Hell" is a Hollywood parody. It's laugh-out-loud funny. "A Hell of a Crime" is a mother-son story. Murder. Cover-up. Very cool. My favorite is "Solomon & Lord: To Hell and Back." I've read all four of the S&L books. If you liked the TV show "Moonlighting," you'll fall for these two. This story has a couple surprises and could have been the basis for a novel. Overall, a big thumbs-up to the collection.
