    " I always enjoy anthologies and/or short stories for when I'm on the "go". Can pick up and put down easily. For some reason, I thought many of these stories were contrived, and poorly written. Thrillers? Don't think so! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 2/8/2014

    " great mix of thriller stories. "

    " Just read the short story by Joan Johnston in here as I had read another book in the Benedict series. I'm not a fan of short stories. I feel like they aren't finished. I was hoping for a little more about Nash. Doesn't feel like this story is even close to being told. "

    " Good as a holiday read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monique | 1/19/2014

    " Okay so finished this book of short stories kinda fast because, lets be honest not all short stories are good and they end up coming off rushed and jam in too much information and you never really understand..those are the ones I skipped through (surprisingly there werent that many complete skips though at the end of some I wish I had skipped.) Anyways there were alot of profile thriller writers on this edition so I picked it up from the library with so-so hopes and it exceeded them...slightly..Out of the 23 stories that "you can't put down" according to the book jacket there were only ten that were worth the time and none of them were truly bloody, gory scary just kinda creep you out, people can be really sick kinda scary..So the stories I liked well they were really good, they had you hooked for the twenty or so pages and then let you down with a witty or LOL kinda ending and I enjoyed three of them a whole bunch..1. Crossed Double by Joe Hartlaub which honestly was funny and cool and not so much scary though.. tells the story of a bad ass dad, wears all black and is mad chill and a stupid son who comes to him with problems they end up handing dad's way--morbid and sassy I loved it. 2. The House on Pine Terrace by Phillip Margolin which was eerie and psychotic with this beginning that entices you until you realize how crazy this main character is and how ruthless she was set up.. 3.Protecting the Innocent by Simon Wood, I liked this one because it read like a real novel, had great characters you really felt you could see and relate to and ended with a surprise that wasnt overly explained but creepy. Okay so that was my breakdown of the really good stories, there were some bad ones and some disappointing ones by some big authors, for example I was really shocked at what Jeffrey Deaver, R.L. Stine and Ridley Pearson submitted..they were reasons I picked it up and strangely I thought there stories were pretty bad, one about terroism and "the weapon"..one about two guys guarding an elderly home for chimpanzees (I know right how lame) and then the last one that was so long and winding that it lost me, which is a shame because it ended the book and was probably the most fleshed out story. Overall I would recommend, if you like short stories, nothing too scary and a new story every so many pages, sometimes you get bored with the same story..nice to switch it up sometimes.. "

    " As far as thrillers go, this one isn't thrilling. A few OK stories, but nothing worth writing about at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. | 1/1/2014

    " Mixed bag. Some of these stories are absolute gems. Others are just so-so. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Doan | 12/31/2013

    " This was the first book I read under the "thriller" genre, and I guess it's just not for me "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kercelia | 12/15/2013

    " I have to say that I like anthologies; especially thriller-types. This is a collection of short stories by many well-known writers of the genre. The stories were entertaining with a few real page-turners thrown in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 12/4/2013

    " Some of the stories are B plus, however, most are ho hum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taiyewo | 12/3/2013

    " I've had this book for so long it's not even funny. I'm so glad I finally buckled down and read it! Each story was unique in it's own way and short enough to be enjoyable, but still leave you interested enough to turn to the next tale. Awesome compilation!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tegan | 11/27/2013

    " Exciting books. Some stories better than others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol Ann | 3/7/2013

    " 23 short stories, and at least half were worth reading. That is a good average. Perfect summer reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simon | 2/9/2013

    " I enjoyed this collection of short stories. My only problem was that quite a few of the tales were a little obvious as to their twists. Enjoyable though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 1/30/2013

    " A nice collection of short stories by some of my favorite authors. The stories have all of the excitement of a thriller packed into a few pages! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly Morgan | 1/30/2013

    " I liked it alot. It wasn't as grusome as I thought it may be. They were very nice stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janie Grunwald | 8/22/2012

    " This is one of those books that I looked forward to opening every night before bed. I'd read one story and would stop myself from going to the next one to make this book last a little longer. I will be reading Thriller 1 also. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam Dick | 6/28/2012

    " This book was mostly a skim read for me. It was not what I thought it was when I requested it from the library. Certainly interesting but not the fiction read that I was looking for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Kenig | 3/12/2012

    " Fun mix of espionage/spy/asassin stories, not for the faint of heart, but for those who like a little suspense. Some fabulous authors are highlighted in this short story collection, which includes great story notes by Clive Cussler that enhance the reading experience greatly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/29/2012

    " Decent collection of short stories. As usual in a collection, your entertainment value may vary. "

About the Author
Author Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler, an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, began writing novels in 1965. He published his first work featuring continuous series hero Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first nonfiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the State University of New York Maritime College considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a PhD thesis and awarded Cussler a doctor of letters degree in May 1997. It was the first time since the college was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed. His books, many of which are New York Times bestsellers, have been published in more than forty languages in more than one hundred countries. He splits his time between Arizona and Colorado.
