    One thought on “Short Sentence: 10 Stories of Dastardly Deeds”

    1. Start with a short story written by an established author in the field. Then challenge other authors to pick the idea and go their own nefarious way with the concept. That's the idea behind "Short Sentence".In this case there are five established crime authors who lay down the concepts. Parker Bilal sets up "Deception", Conor Fitzgerald offers "Bad Judgement", Anne Zouroudi gives us "Payback", Thomas Mogford explores "Secrets and Lies" and James Runcie finishes us off with "Obsession". The entri [...]

    2. 3.5 StarsThere were definitely some stories that were better than others in this anthology. I think my favorite part of this collection of short stories was the fact that they were antagonist POV stories. Some of the crimes committed seemed vanilla compared to some of the more gruesome and malicious stories that were told, but were still entertaining. My favorites included “Who’s Calling?” by Parker Bilal, “Secrets and Lies” by Jan Snook, and “Shadower” by Sarah Evans. My least fav [...]

    3. It was a free download and a very short book - most of you could read it during breakfast. (I don't eat breakfast so it took me a day.) There are 10 short stories, each with a twist or a bit of wryness. And each is not so much "a story" as a thought with some words around it. One I liked most contained the humorous musings of a doctor's receptionist in trouble with her boss. The whole thing was a fun diversion.

    4. A collection of short stories (approx 1000 words each) that follow the themes of murder, revenge, lies and deception. If you enjoy a quick read with your morning coffee, during your lunch break or of an evening, this collection is for you. If you are looking for character development, resolutions to crime or answers to challenging moral questions, then maybe you should avoid it. Worth the read, that's for sure - just not enough stories (although it is free on .)

    5. This freebie paired short stories from five Bloomsbury crime authors (Parker Bilal, Conor Fitzgerald, Anne Zouroudi, Thomas Mogford and James Runcie) with stories of the same theme written by the winning competitors in a short-story mystery writing contest. It was a quick read, but lots of fun.

    6. These short-short stories don't have much room for plot development, but something happened in all of them--generally the focus was on the crime, not the solution.

    7. Overall, I thought this was a really good book.It was filled with many different short stories that are dark and devious. I found some of them to be chilling to the bone. I couldn't put the book down. They didn't take long to read and I thought that some of these stories were worth the reading.It is a good read for people who likes crime novels from the authors Parker Bilal, Conor Fitzgerald, Anne Zouroudi, Thomas Mogford and James Runcie.

    8. Only read it for my 40 Book Challenge as one category is for Short Stories, but I don't usually buy those did what it said on the tin, but nothing brilliant.

    9. A read to pass the timeI wanted them to be a bit more spine tingling but were more slightly creepy. But the book served its purpose well, passing an hour during the day. Was going to put three stars but they were definitely dastardly deeds as described so four stars well merited.

    10. A collection of short crime stories (some of them are very short!!). It's what it says on my the tin. A fairly good read. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to get into crime fiction and isn't sure about the genre.

    11. After reading so many long novels lately, this was a breath of fresh air. The stories are extremely short making it a great work break read. I was expecting better with the stories from the reviews I'd seen. This was written in a very different way than the normal stuff and that made them more interesting.There were three in it that left me wanting more. Those authors have my attention now and I'm getting another book of theirs to see if they're interesting enough to follow closer attention to i [...]

    12. Amazingly, all ten stories are equally pointless and, as half-heartedly as unsuccessfully, grasp for a surprise ending. The stories are all very short (5-7 pages each) and therefore quickly finished, so this was not an overly painful experience – but certainly not a pleasant or memorable one either.

    13. Dastardly, indeed.Excellent mixture of authors. If you are a mild- mannered person who likes to read about dastardly deeds without the gore or horror, then this is a good book to read. I, personally, dislike stories that go overboard with guts and that worry you into paranoia, but this collection of dastardly deeds is rather dastardly good.

    14. This is a very strong collection of short stories. There were only two I thought were a bit weird and I really enjoyed the other 8.It amazes me what a good author can fit into such a short story. The first and last were probably the strongest of the bunch, both made me want a full length continuation of the stories.

    15. As I've seen someone else say, it's a collection of expanded thoughts. Some better than others, and I must admit some left me a bit confused. However it was a nice short holiday read.
