Unusual stories of love, fear, insecurities, and control, I was transfixed and couldn't stop reading until I had finished the first story in this collection,' Evil Eye'. A young woman marries a much older man who at first seems concerned about her welfare but then treats her like the hired help. A visit from his ex-wife adds an element of intrigue to the story. Once she leaves, the house doesn't feel quite the same.

The second story, 'So Near Anytime Always', a young woman befriends a young man who appears perfect. But a couple of uncomfortable situations when anger turns to rage, reveals a man with a deeper secret.

The third story, 'The Execution', stars a young college man who is so engrossed in his own life that he believes all his problems are the fault of his parents. His solution: kill his parents. His mother lives and he spends his life caring for her as only justice can decide.

The final story, 'The Flatbed' tells the story of a young woman who is pursued by an older man who truly loves her. But she is unable to feel love or closeness due to her horrific abusive past. A meeting with her abuser ends in a confrontation that ends in murder.

I rate "Evil Eye" 5 out of 5 stars
