For one who has never read a Morse book but who was a great fan of the television series, I enjoyed this alternate ending. It made me smile and if Colin Dexter himself approved, why begrudge Ms. Masters for giving our imaginations the possibility of dreaming and wondering what the old chap is up too under the Italian sun... I may even pick-up Mr. Dexter's books!

This short story has you completely taken into the world of Jewish women both in Poland and in New York at the beginning of last century. Character development is thorough and believable. Jewish folklore was perfectly rendered in all its darkness and its unyielding faith.

The story is dark, true, but it reflects the era perfectly.

As a matter of fact, the story was so compelling and the writing so good and tight I had to stop and get the omnibus series for there was no way I was going to waste a single minute keeping that series in reading order on my KPW...

I've become a fan of Carolyn McCray. She manages to make you go though every feeling in the book... If like me you accept fiction for just that and that you readily and happily suspend your personal belief then splurge and get this series for it is definitely one heck of a ride!

J'ai hésité car les commentaires déjà postés lors de mon achat étaient vraiment variés aussi j'ai tenté ma chance. J'aurais du passer mon chemin car ce petit tapis en gomme ne fonctionne pas comme décrit. Si on le place de façon verticale il ne supporte pas le poids de mon téléphone (j'ai essayé avec mon petit Nokia C6 avant de tenter le coup avec mon grand Huawei Ascend Mate).

Lorsque placé dans le compartiment au dessus de la boite à gant, il retient le téléphone mais ce n'est pas pratique ni même prudent en conduisant car cela ne me permet pas de voir et à fortiori de lire l'écran. Par contre, là il reste bien accroché au téléphone ce qui est bien désagréable.

Donc il me faudra acheter un support GPS plus classique si je veux pouvoir utiliser cette fonction de mon Smartphone.

Utilisez plutôt les 0,79€ sur un paquet de chewing gum ou autre friandise mais pas sur ce produit qui ne sert vraiment à rien !

I confess I've never read this author before but, with his multiple writing identities and diverse topics, I figured a short story would be the perfect medium to decide whether his work was to my taste.

My 5-star rating should give you a clue. I enjoyed myself tremendously. I'm not well versed in were-whatever-animal but I had never considered the premise that someone might not know for certain he/she was also an "it" and therefore, might need a group to help them grasp that fact... Won't give any spoilers here, not with a short story, but again, I had a great time reading it. I loved the style and I loved the mind behind the style... You should too!

I don’t know whether this information is good or not because I was put off by the poor writing skills displayed there. Grammar, syntax and typos made it too annoying to take it in.

Some advices were quite ridiculous, such as “Never swim alone” No other explanation given!!?? Unless swimming in shark infested waters I don’t see how 10 or 50 extra pounds can make swimming a dangerous exercise… Stranger still, no warning was given under the “Running” paragraph. And then there was the “Keep Dehydrated” header…

I visited the writer’s website. It only confirmed my already made opinion. A poor grasp of American English doesn’t make advice taken seriously. I’m sorry Ms Johnson, but you need an editor for both your book and your website!

This series of 7 books is simply great. Ms. McCray writing is sharp, well paced and a lot of research has gone into making these stories. The characters are complexed and one really gets to know them, love them, hate them, empathize with them The stories have you traveling the world and, if like me you are willing to suspend your personal belief when reading fiction, then, you'll have a mighty great time reading pages after pages and like me, even after over 1300 of them, you'll hate having to part with this great group of people.

I can't wait for the follow-up Betrayed series to be released and in the meantime, I'll check out more books from Carolyn McCray!

Obviously I love cats. All cats, big or small. But this Golden Prince is quite magical and the pictures do capture that.

The pictures are beautiful, although I wish they could have been bigger since I read the book on my computer screen. Nonetheless they are beautiful and, if you ever owned a cat, you know how difficult it is to take decent picture of them when they are not sleeping. Ms. Busch succeeded, proof of the special bond both shared.

Despite the sad ending, this is one book I'll keep just for the pleasure of looking into Khalil's soulful eyes once more.

I truly enjoyed the ride taken while reading this short book. Just like Lisa the waitress, I doubted, I believed only to doubt again until... Well, I'm not going to spoil it for you.

This is my first time reading this author. Had "purchased" this ebook for 0€ last July thinking, hey, this looks like an interesting take on things but I have so many books to read, it took me all this time to get around it. But now, I've downloaded other ebooks from this author to see if he is really that talented. I suspect he is!

Don't bother with this one. I never or almost never NOT finish a book. If this had been a paper version, I think I would have burned the darn thing!

Instead of giving some valuable tips on training oneself in "thinking positive" we are told how "religion" should help us reach that goal. I have nothing against religion, but this was not the topic described. I don't like being lied to!
