    " I was never convinced of the motivations behind the driving action which the plot revolved around. The characters would have been more believable if it were set in a time period two or so decades back. I was unable to relate to either of the female characters as modern women. "

    " Sorrow for not giving this a higher review, I started with high expectations. The characters are just too dysfunctional--and it ways the authors don't really give us a good excuse for--for me to invest in them or to bring forth my sympathy. "

    " Nightmare in Paradise was pretty cool. I don't doubt that things like that actually happen on exotic vacations. The second story by Victor took me a little longer to get through. I guess I'm not a big fan of stories that take place that far back in the day. "
