    This micro-collection of shorts by J.D. Brink contains two supernatural noir tales, a science-fiction hard-boiled detective story, and a fairly run-of-the mill vampire story that doesn't quite fit. If the vampire story were an episode of a cable television horror anthology series, it's only redeeming quality would be the obligatory gratuitous nudity.The noir/hard-boiled stuff is pretty good though. I especially liked the SF piece "Eating in the Underworld," which features a sex-bot custom-built [...]

    This was my first GR giveaway win and I really wanted to love the book, but I just couldn't get into it. The trick with short stories is that you have to develop the characters, plot and suspense in a hurry. The only story that I thought achieved all of those was "Lonely". The other stories just didn't grab my attention.

    I cannot review this book in any unbiased manner as it is my own, but I would recommend it as an enjoyable read to those who like noir-styled mature dark fantasy and horror.

    I have to agree with the review before mine.I received this book in a giveaway, and I was really enthusiastic to read it. I wanted to love it. The cover is exciting, it is signed by the author, and the dedication had me thrilled because I happen to love Bogart, Hitchcock, and film noir as well.Personally, the writing style did not interest me. This may not be the same for other readers, but it did not suit my taste. There are a lot of comma splices. As I agree with the previous review, I found t [...]

    This was 2nd J.D. Brink book I listened. It included 3 + 1 horror/mystery stories and backround story about his inspiration for these stories. There were no weak stories, but not great ones either. There were no true suspense moments and stories felt little bit old or heard before ones. As he described his inpiration, being a kid in 80's and new kid(adult) in town, leaves lots of time to spend alone and lots of time to read and watch TV. So these stories seems to be seen in X-files, Amazing Stor [...]

    3.5 stars. I received this audiobook for free for my honest opinion. I did not read anything about this book or the author. I had no idea that this was a collection of short stories. In this version there are a total of 4 short stories. I hate short stories. There is never enough to really determine what is going on, if you like the characters or if you like the story line. So why did I give this book 3.5 stars, well it was good. I listened to this book 2 weeks ago and I am still thinking about [...]

    I received a copy of this book through a Giveaway contest.A collection of adult orientated short stories. Violence and sex. Not a gratuitous amounts. Three stories making this a short book.I like short stories. If you do not have time for a long read, they are perfect. They give you a taste of different settings, characters and outcomes.The first story was little hard to get into. Keeping track of the characters was conufusing. The nest two were not hard to follow.I felt the characters were wel [...]

    This was an absolute gem of short stories. The book was very detailed and descriptive the stories had great characters and I found myself unable to put this book down until I finished it, although it was a short book it was a great book. I thank J.D Brink for giving me the opportunity to review a copy of this book and look forward to more of his work!

    very gooda fast short readi liked all three storysliked all the blood scencesthank you for letting me read this book

    This was a good mix of crazy, horror short stories. Very imaginative and the added music made it a bit like a radio show, an X rated radio show.
