From a simple robbery gone horribly wrong to a grisly murder in a secret love dungeon, this stellar collection of crime fiction short stories showcases some of today's finest voices of color. Edited by Wall Street Journal best-selling author Abby L. Vandiver, this thrilling anthology will keep you on the edge of your seat. 

Jennifer Chow: "Midnight Escapade"

After years of silence, two women decide to meet up in a unique escape room, but get trapped in a deadly game from which there may be no escape. 

Tracy Clark: "Lucky Thirteen"

A gun. A last meal. And only one survivor. Sometimes the stars align - but only for the lucky one - as predator and prey come face-to-face one fateful New Year's Eve. 

H.C. Chan: "Murderers' Feast"

Techpreneur John Manley left a trail of duped investors and damaged women in his wake. What happens when 200 of his closest enemies gather for a five-day gourmet retreat? 

Christopher Chambers: "In the Matter of Mabel and Bobby Jefferson"

It's almost midnight, it's snowing, and a bored call center worker catches a customer inquiry that smells of murder. Is he a knight rescuing the intended victim or someone else's pawn? 

Plus, stories by Richie Narvaez, Frankie Bailey, E. A. Aymar, Faye Snowden, Tina Kashian, and many more.

Very few Hits & Lotsa misfires.

If not for a couple of gems, I'd have rated this anthology a lot lower than what I have.
The few stories that worked were not only chilling or intriguing, but honestly displayed coming from a legit edgier, racial perspective.
But the remaining stories came off way too safe & rote in both their stories & cultural significance.
Murder shouldn't be so damn bland!
And most of the voice narrations didnt help either, making it all sound more tepid than chilling.
