#amreading - Crime Scenes Short Story Anthology

Book Title: 

I did jump this up the queue. A lot. I just love short story collections, and there are some wonderful writers in this.

From the Blurb:

Is there really such a thing as an innocent person?

Teachers, cops, mothers, wives, everyone has their breaking point; that moment where it could go either way. From the prostitute with no way out, to the bitter author, and a cop who just wants his leave, the characters in this collection will baffle and bewilder you at every turn.

Although I do think I should be smoking a cigarette, drinking straight scotch and sat somewhere dark and vaguely sinister...
