Editorial Reviews


"The crimes featured in The Best Laid Plans range from poisonings to bank robberies to contract killings, and the settings are both varied and fascinating. I loved this book!" -- John M. Floyd, Edgar nominee and three-time Derringer Award winner

"An an entertaining collection of tales that deliver in all aspects. Much like buying a lottery ticket, these characters are dreaming up ways to permanently solve problems."--
Kevin Tipple, Kevin's Corner

"A dazzling collection of twenty-one short tales of mayhem, leaving both the reader and the corpses breathless. A five-star read that you will never forget."--
Kate Thornton, Derringer-nominated short story author

"Even the best laid plans can go awry, and with these well-thought out mysteries and 'I didn't see that coming!' short stories, you get to enjoy it twenty-one times.."--
Kathleen Costa, Kings River Life Magazine 

Delicious! That word best describes the yummy bites of well written, crafty crime stories. Murder for hire, money, sibling rivalry, envy, infidelity. Murder of the wrong person. Killer acting and get-rich schemes...the clever twists are endless."--
Catherine Astolfo, bestselling author and two-time winner of the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Short Story 

"One of the most enjoyable aspects of reading a short-story anthology is variety. Variety of voice, location, time and space, woven together with a common thread; and in the case of The Best Laid Plans, that thread is stories of seemingly everyday people with the darkest intentions gone awry." --
Gladwish, Gladwish on Demand
