Publisher's Summary

Desire leaves a man destroyed.... A young girl's curiosity reveals secrets better left hidden.... An accidental encounter on a train ends violently.... Ambition leads to a curious exchange.... An uncanny likeness changes two lives forever.... Here is a novel in 16 chilling parts, linked by a glittering charm bracelet that brings misfortune to everyone who handles it. In Like a Charm, the cream of British and American crime writers combine for a must-have collection. From 19th-century Georgia, where the bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, a steam train across Europe, the violent backstreets of 1980s Scotland, present-day London, a Manhattan taxi, the Mojave Desert, and back to Georgia, each writer weaves a gripping story of murder, betrayal and intrigue.

    "Probably my worst purchase so far"

    Extremely disappointing and not the quality of work I would normally associate with Karin Slaughter, Mark Billingham, etc. whose books I have enjoyed in the past.

    "Not for me
    "

    The summary sounded good, but I found the stories a bit too brutal. There was too much violence against women and the story on the train with the young man who was a bit slow was a distasteful I my opinion. I got half way through and didn't want to listen to any more. I listen to fiction to be entertained but I didn't find this book entertaining.

    "Terrible book!"

    This is by far the worst book I've ever listened to. Chewed through the first few chapters - long winded, boring and incredibly racist. Stopped it after a few chapters.
