Midnight Hour

"The flames sputtered hot and large. They licked the sides of the pot as if they would be able to sustain that level of passion forever." ~ 48%

Midnight Hour is a new anthology of crime fiction by 20 authors of color. Yes, twenty!

It is a good introduction to authors I'd never read; although, I preferred the short stories by authors I am already familiar with such as Abby L. Vandiver and Tracy Clark. The stories are all about crime committed around midnight. Grisly murders, guns, duped investors, damaged women and intended victims fill the pages. Different cultures are featured. Several writing styles are within. However, none of the stories were memorable enough to call a favorite.

Perfect for readers that like short story collections and those interested in discovering new crime fiction authors.

Happy Pub Day, Abby L. Vandiver and contributing authors! Midnight Hour is now available.

Disclaimer: An advance copy was received directly from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Opinions are my own and would be the same if I spent my hard-earned coins.
