Ey Deaver Elly Griffiths and Joe R Landsdal. Book reviews on wwwsnazzybookscomExit Wounds is a brilliant anthology of short crime stories from some of the genre s biggest and best namesI have to admit that I ve never really been a short story person I always preferred the investment and story development of a full length novel but the fact these are only short means you re left wanting much especially the stories that really hook you in with great characters and an intriguing premise This is when I kind of wish they weren t short stories but full length just so I can read and Saying that it s SO satisfying to read multiple interesting plots albeit short ones and experience lots of great ideas within a collection that s less than 400 pages This mix of separate narratives truly sparks the imagination in a different way than one long story and you have absolutely no time to get boredI love that each story is markedly different but all on the theme of crime and all with a decidedly and delightedly dark twist I liked that each had its own spin on crime and featured every kind of character from serial killers and unhappy controlled teenagers to beaten vengeful wivesThe way you get to almost sample the writing style of various different authors is a great way to discover a new crime author though the authors in this anthology are really big names so you ve probably already read something by most of them before The stories are absorbing and intriguing though some provoked really strong emotions in meLebensraum by Christopher Fowler made me angry and upset for the landlady who is the main character in that tale and Dancing Towards The Blade by Mark Billingham made me even angry on behalf of Vincent who is victimized by racist bullies There are also plenty of stories which left me feeling triumphant and or satisfied I particularly enjoyed Happy Holidays by Val McDermid featuring DCI Carol Jordan Booty and the Beast by Joe R Lansdale Dead Weight by Fiona Cummins and Fool You Twice by Steph Broadribb an author I haven t read anything by before but will definitely turn to in futureOverall I highly recommend this anthology for any crime fan particularly if you re a short story fan but even if you re not usually like me I hugely enjoyed Exit Wounds and will be buying it as a present for various reader friends who I know will also really enjoy it

Ten by masters of the genre including Jeffr. I voluntarily reviewed this book from the PublisherI will be the first to admit that I don t tend to read many short stories and this is something that I would like to rectify so when EXIT WOUNDS arrived through my letterbox I was delighted to try something a little different From serial killers picking off their prey to those hell bent on revenge this collection of crime stories from some of the best in the business grabbed my attention at the very first story and every one thereafter Dark twisted and with characters that got under my skin in just a few pages EXIT WOUNDS is a must read for short story and crime fiction fans the world over While each and every story is different and fresh there were a few that I favoured The Bully by Jeffrey Deaver Happy Holidays by Val McDermid and The Pitcher by Sarah Hilary All the stories are excellent and brimming with tension but there was just that extra something about those three that made me take a deep breath while reading them Compelling characters sinister plots and crackling atmosphere can all be found in the short stories nestled among the pages of EXIT WOUNDS and I highly recommend it to all fiction readers especially those who are unsure about short stories because this collection is sure to change your mind

    Dark and twisted tales in small bitesI’m not a fan of short stories by design there is a contrivance that just doesn’t seem to agree with me Short story writers have to deliver a tight narrative believable characters and a solid plot in just a few pages that always feels artificial but somehow in these stories the artifice worked If you’re a fan of short stories or if you’d like to sample the writing style of notables in

    Ok here it is This short stories novel are just that short A uick read indeed but some of the stories go nowhere or need elaboration on the plot Some of the stories are fantastic and to the point of no expansion in the storytelling S

    'm grateful to Titan for a free advance copy of Exit WoundsI love a good themed anthology I find an anthology does several things for me as a reader First if well chosen and the authors in this one are among the best their perspectives what's the right word for a gang of authors? A plot? can shed light – or dark – on a subject

    If there is one thing in the book world that is misunderstood and completely underrated for me it has to be the short story or in this case the short story anthology I know that some people feel that short stories don't allow them to get to know the characters that they aren't meaty enough but for me they are the perfect bitesize w
