This anthology consists of nineteen well-written new
stories that focus, for the most part, on how everyday
people react when pushed over the edge. The contributions
are fun to follow as each story adheres to the premise
though the scenarios differ between the contributions.
This in turn leads to the reader in several cases placing
themselves in the precarious situations in order to ponder
how they would have acted. The authors are some of the
leaders of the mystery/suspense genre and obviously
everyone took the tasking seriously to the benefit of the
audience. The trouble with this book is that the tales are
so good this reviewer broke a personal commandment of
reading no more than three shorts a day (to fully savor a
collection), but this time finished BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS in
one sitting as will most readers.
