With his second collection of thirty tales--short and long, lighthearted and gritty--master short-story author John M. Floyd invites us once more to strap ourselves into a ride that entertains as well as enlightens. And, as his readers has come to expect, almost every story features two ingredients Floyd loves: nonstop suspense and a Hitchcock-like surprise ending. But the best thing about these stories is their variety. They dish up something to satisfy devotees of every genre: mystery, adventure, humor, western, fantasy, romance, even science fiction. The settings take us from Alaska to England to Hawaii to the American West, and the characters include bank robbers, housemaids, time-travelers, police snipers, sorcerers, gunfighters, mad scientists, stuntmen, bungling angels and kindly monsters. There is even a continuation of the mystery series introduced in Rainbow's End--eight more stories featuring bossy schoolteacher Angela Potts and her long-suffering former student Sheriff Chunky Jones. So kick off your shoes, settle back in that easy chair, and prepare to be transported to a world of suspense and deception. These bite-sized stories are sure to thrill you and delight you--and keep you up long past midnight...
