Exit Wounds

1 Mins read

Called on to review this lineup of short stories assembled by Paul B Kane and Marie O’Regan, you’d be hard-pressed to pick the best storyteller. Nineteen of the English-speaking world’s leading mystery writers created stories involving some kind of ‘exit’ from a crime situation and an exploration of the wounds left behind. You’ll find clever twists, toxic parent-child relationships, echoes of past masters, especially the macabre sensibility of Edgar Allan Poe and memorable metaphors of Raymond Chandler. You’ll find people who take the job of dispensing justice into their own hands and more than you probably wish you knew about fire ants. A stunning collection! Read our full review here.
