This is a strong collection of short stories. As is usually the case with collections such as this, I connected with some of the stories more than others, but the quality of writing throughout remains high.
I particularly enjoyed the humour and surreal madness of 'Squatter'; the originality of 'Nothing but the Truth'; 'Keep it in the Family' had me instantly hooked; while 'Red Queen Check' is so erotically-charged through its narrative of revenge I'm compelled to check out more of Elizabeth Horton-Newton's other works. Enjoyable but slightly longer works are 'Beneath' and 'Terrestrial Traitor'. 'Mark of the Hyena' is from this writer's perspective written in the most enviable prose style. One of my favourites, however, is 'Confessions', an excellent psychological tale about a young man's quest for redemption and hope.
All of this is subjective, of course, but I have no reservations in recommending the collection, as there is a good variety of characters, themes and situations to keep you entertained, and the standard of writing remains strong throughout.
I was given the book for an honest review
