    1. Writers red in tooth and claw…I have a hard and fast, unbreakable, cast-iron rule that I do not, under any circumstances whatsoever, review books written by people I know, because the review will inevitably be biased. Fortunately, since it’s my rule, I can ignore it whenever I choose. ;)So when I heard that my blogging buddy Margot Kinberg from Confessions of a Mystery Novelist had edited an anthology of crime stories, and that it also included a story from another blogger I occasionally cha [...]


    2. Anthologies are always difficult to rate if they include more than one writer’s work, as this one does, so I will tackle each story individually before giving my overall impression of the anthology, In a Word, Murder.1) Pamela Griffith - THE AGENCYThe first story in this collection was by far my least favorite. The author had a good idea, but cross-cut too many varying story-lines that eventually merged in this tale surrounding a crime magazine, an apparent suicide and the investigation, and a [...]


    3. This is a really good collection of short crime stories. There is such a good taste of a variety of styles and of stories. All were rather captivating in their own way. There are secrets, lies, murder, deceit, betrayal, double-cross, being sneaky… you name it you’ll find a story here that has it. There were definitely some surprising twists and some surprising endings. After reading it, it just left me with wanting more, which is a good sign of well written stories. It was easy to identify w [...]


    4. Anyone who writes or works in the area of crime fiction will love this collection of short crime stories. The collection offers a fresh look at crime writing from the viewpoint of writer, reviewer, publisher, editor, and blogging. All the stories captured my interest and as a writer I particularly appreciated the various voices and techniques and, of course, the suspense woven in these stories. As added bonus these stories were written in memory of crime writer Maxine Clarke. Neat.


    5. An excellent collection of short stories, wide ranging in character and length, but all dealing in some way with the world of publishing.


    6. Kindle anthology in honor/memory of crime blogger Maxine Clarke, AKA Petrona.Proceeds to go to Princess Alice Hospital in the UK


    7. This anthology was published in memory of Maxine Clarke, a prolific and knowledgeable book blogger and one who evidently inspired much affection in her on-line presence, so much so that a group of bloggers recommend books on the blog Petrona Remembered which is well worth checking out if you enjoy crime fiction. The proceeds of the sale of this book go to the Princess Alice Hospice which cares for people suffering from terminal illnesses from a wide area covering, London, Middlesex and Surrey. T [...]

    9. Fun, quick read, for those who like their mysteries laced with a good dose of humour. Blogging as a deadly game, self-publishing or genuinely perishing, the cut-throat nature of music copyright, the dangers of changing publishers are just a few of the themes handled with great panache by this group of diverse authors.


    10. From light to dark and brutal, if you’re into the crime genre, you’ll love this collection of nine crime short stories. As an aspiring crime writer myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this anthology. 4 Stars.Pamela Griffith’s - The Agency – I enjoyed the premise of the story. Shadowy government agencies, assassins and late in life babies and suicide and you have an interesting plot. I would have liked to see this fleshed out a bit more as I found the ending unsatisfying. Paula K. Randall’s - [...]


    11. This thin volume contains nine short stories by seven authors; each story involves a mystery related to the "world of words." The collection was created and dedicated to the memory of Maxine Clarke, who wrote a blog and reviews about crime fiction. Proceeds from the sale of this collection go to Princess Alice Hospice in the United Kingdom.It's a worthy cause, and the authors of the stories brought divergent plots and characters to the mix. Perhaps the hole I fell into was forged by the differen [...]
