The best thing about this book was the introductions by James Patterson. Some of the stories were passable but if I had wanted to know more about the spy trade or similar I would have bought that book (lets face it there are plenty). The stories were too short not at all clever and despite the authors amatuerish. Leave this book on the shelf or flick through it and choose something that might appeal to your reading mood. It won't keep you up at night that talent is left to more exciting authors nothing spooky there.
