    Posted to The Literary Lawyer.ca A Unique and Thrilling Anthology 3.8 Stars When I saw an anthology that had Cotton Malone and Grayson Pierce in the same story, I had to get my hands on the book I don t know about you, but I would love to read a cross over novel with my favorite characters Unfortunately, the cross over novels will never occur but this is a fun substitute I did a short review of each story and averaged the ratings out to 3.8 stars Most of the stories were great while a couple lacked Some of the biggest authors here gave a below average stories but there were plenty of great stories to go around This is a fun anthology that is well worth the read.RED EYE 3.5 StarsDennis Lehane vs Michael ConnellyPatrick Kenzie vs Harry BoschThe PI and the Police officer meet in this short story Harry Bosch finds himself in Boston looking for DNA to close a decade old cold case In the process he finds himself on Kenzie s turf while Kenzie is tracking down a missing girl As their interests seem to be the same, they assist each other to find some evidence they hope will assist them both to close their case.There is interesting dialogue between these two type A personalities as each tries to up the other once or twice and one finds himself as the butt end of a joke or two The two writing styles matched well and the result was an above average short story The authors faced an obvious issue of deciding how to get a Boston PI and LA Detective into ...

    I won this book in a GoodReads.com First Reads Giveaway

    I only read 4 5 of these Most were crap, occult, crap, old dull farts, crap, paranormal, crap, horror, crap, fecking lawyers crap, or wildly misogynistic Rhymes with Prey Ugh It was nice to see Patrick Kenzie again, even as Connelly was stingy with my wonderful Bosch written as pretty dull It s also interesting as this story occurs before the last book in the series, Moonlight Mile Timing is just as Kenzie and Gena...

    Great concept here matching different characters together in short stories Eleven tales with twenty two characters This is an offering fron the International Thriller Writers Brief intros before each story gives us sketches of the characters and how it was decided to put them together.A lot of them I wasn t familiar with As much as I try, Lord knows I can t read everything Nice introductions though and it certainly gave me some directions to head.My favorite, and the longest, was RHYMES WITH PREY by Jeffrey Deaver and John Sandford putting Lincoln Rhyme and Lucas Davenport working a case together Also liked GASLIGHTED by R L Stine, Douglas Preston, and Lincoln Child with Slappy the Ventriloquist Dummy againsy Aloysius Pendergast.But make no mistake all absorbing storye...

    While the premise is promising, the results fail to deliver The authors are better served sticking to their own characters and stories 2 of 10 stars

    I enjoyed seeing a few of my favorite suspense detective type characters either square off or join in an adventure In my opinion, the best featured Lee Child s Jack Reacher, and the weirdest was Pendergast vs the dummy but I m still thinking about that bizarre thing a couple of days later

    Sometimes, the total is greater than the sum of its parts The Talisman by Peter Straub and Stephen King comes to mind And sometimesnot FaceOff is regrettably an example of the latter Most of the collaborations here would not even be publishable if not for the names who did the writing They are just a big yawn Hey, not every novelist can write short stories.I think a variation of the following conversation took place often than we would like to think Hey mate, we promised David we would write something for his antho...
