Review by

This was a very enjoyable read - a collection of short stories written by some of the best known thriller writers. What made it unique was each story had the author's primary hero teamed up with - or opposed to - the other author's primary character. While many of these authors are among by favorites in the genre, I was introduced to some I have never read before. Now I look forward to exploring their works as well. A great idea for a work that promotes this genre.
