The Dark End of the Street : New Stories of Sex and Crime by Todays Top Authors
In one fast-paced story, a strong and aggravated man considers the pretty woman at the bar while he fingers the knife in his pocket. But what becomes of his prey when they move to the bedroom? In another tale, a man remembers the victim of a ghastly murder who visited the same hair salon as he does. And a Don Juan of a protagonist has a hobby of marrying vulnerable women, getting access to their bank accounts, and then robbing them blind. But there is much more to this collection than dark-haired vixens and crimes of passion. Some stories are brooding, some twisted; some bring righteous satisfaction, some linger in the back of your mind. What is truly on display is an impressive collection of literary talent: a group of some of the best writers we have, weaving fresh and memorable stories from a pair of classic themes. Taken as a whole, they are a rare treat for fans of great fiction, whether its high literature, good old-fashioned suspense, or anything in between. Original black-and-white art by artist/author Jonathan Santlofer completes this innovative, exciting, and irresistibly intriguing book-a true literary gem.

1 . A walk on the dark side
Posted July 01, 2010 by Bill Snow , ColoradoJust got this the other day and I really enjoyed this book. I am not usually a short story reader but several of these tales have great twists and turns that kept me guessing right up to the end of the story. Most of these are really well written some by some very well know authors. They are pretty intense and fairly graphic (sex and violence, yep as promised) without being too explicit for most readers. If you are looking for some quick reads to fill a little time between novels give this "Dark End of the Street" a quick stroll. Just watch your back and don't talk to strangers
