True Stories Reviews
I was given this book in exchange for a review. Normally short stories are not my favourite form of reading but I loved it; shades of Alfred Hitchcock. I couldn't tell which one was not true. Each was different from the other. Great book, worth reading.
I was given this book in exchange for a free review. What a gem! All stories are extremely well written. They remind me of"the gift of the magi" only with crime. The author claims that all stories are true except one, but I'd take that tongue in cheek. Great stories and well worth the read. Get this book!
