BOTTOM-LINE:
Solid collection
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
A collection of decent stories
.
WHAT I LIKED:
Two stories stand out. Fatal Accident deals with a cop on vacation who sees a car wreck in front of him where the wife dies. When he tries to follow up with the hospitalized driver, the driver is more worried about people looking at the car than the wife. The cop's instincts say murder. Not quite as solid but memorable is Crime of Omission, where a man consumed by jealousy is trying to convince himself to kill his best friend/wife's lover while up at the cottage in the winter. Can he do it? Will he have to? Nice twist ending, although kind of campy.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
Nothing bad stands out.
.
DISCLOSURE:
