"Nightshade" by Stephen England - A team of CIA assassins are in Paraguay to take out a terrorist. Things go wrong, but skilled people know how to improvise. A recent novel by the author is Day of Reckoning (Shadow Warriors)
"The Pepper Tyrant" by J. Gregory Smith - a man just wants to live his life, but is on the wrong side of a Mexican gangster. There is a way to remove the threat, but not everything is as he expected.
"Everybody Wins" by Lisa Mannetti - A woman is suicidal, but someone has an arrangement to change her life, perhaps not as expected.
"Fat Larry's Night With the Alligators" by Ben Goldman - A question of disposing of a body in the Everglades, except that is not the only reason they are there.
"Thyf's Tale" by Christine Morgan - set in the Viking era with an unexpected assassin.
"Misconceptions" by Matt Hilton - sometimes two jobs get rolled into one.
"Second Amendment Solution" by Billie Sue Mosiman - Set in Texas, the home of the author, this is a story that would appeal to the NRA and others favoring the right to bear arms. Big government in the form of Homeland Security has taken a man away without saying why. His wife was brought up to believe a person has a right to defend themselves and their family (her father had killed an intruder). So what should she do?
"Killer" by Ken Bruen - is a strange story, almost surreal.
"For the Love of Boys" by Rob M. Miller - A story about pedophiles and retribution.
"Bloodshed Fred" by Monica J. O'Rourke - A hit man gets an assignment that he had not expected and perhaps should have used more caution.
"Slasher" by F. Paul Wilson - This is a bit of an eerie story. People need to be careful to check things out better.
"Fire and Ice" by Joseph Badal - Some punks who think they are above the law find out they have messed with the wrong family. The author's most recent novel is Shell Game: Inspired by Actual Events (Volume 1) [Paperback]  (Author) Joseph Badal
"Madame" by Doug Blakeslee - It's a family business dating back several centuries.
"The Man Who Shot Hitler" by Elliott Capon - a fanciful alternate history.
"Mercy Killing" by Laura DiSilverio - An unusual plot with a blind hit man. That can be a disadvantage in more ways than one. Checking on this author led me to the collection. She usually writes about PI Charlie Swift Swift Justice: A Mystery (Thomas Dunne Books) and the Mall Cop series Die Buying (Mall Cop)
"Scrub" by Michael Bailey - A somewhat strange story about a woman with a sideline.
"The Wellmaster's Daughter" by James S. Dorr - Set in the Sahara desert, this story is not going to end well for anyone.
"Wish I'd Never Met You" by Jonathan Templar - Assassins with time travel who can change the past (with permission).
"The Bluelight Special" by J. Carson Black - A man wants another man to pay for the injuries a woman suffered, but the man needs some convincing. The author writes the Laura Cardinal series Flight 12: A Laura Cardinal Thriller (Flight 12 Begins Series)
"Welcome to the Food Chain" by Weldon Burge - An unsavory type wants to cut a hit man's fee, and you should never annoy a hit man, especially one who may not be completely right in the head.
"Inside Out" by Al Boudreau - Dealing with a dangerous man is not always advisable, especially if you have given him a reason to dislike you.
"Katakiuchi" by Charles Colyott is in narrative form with a character that will remind you of Lisbeth Salander. Amazing what you can do with superior computer skills; especially if you really don't like someone.
"Taking Care of Business" by Lynn Mann - Who is stinging whom?
It's their job to take out a top Al Queda leader. You can feel the tension throughout the team, sense the danger and urgency when the mission doesn't go as planned. You want to shout out to Harry watch your back. I can't wait to get to the next page to see how they will get the mission done, get rid of the bad guy and will they all make it home safely.
As I read the other stories I will edit this review but I couldnt wait to share my review of NIGHTSHADE. Well done Stephen.
It was a fun read, all the way through. I'd certainly be interested in seeing other anthologies edited by Weldon Burge in the future!

I'd say about 50% were really goo, 30% were okay, the rest were just plain weird, and on was just unreadable.
I won't go into more detail as a) it might just be my taste in stories that is at fault, and b) I don't want to risk an accidental spoiler!
Overall, though, I'd have to say it was a pretty decent read.
