Format: Paperback
I would have appropriately titled this book "Flesh and Blood: Tales of Crime" because that would have garnered 5 stars. I found little evidence of eroticism and passion in most of the stories, and when any hint of them would arise, it was short-lived. I enjoyed the tales overall, but was mislead. I then became frustrated reading tale after tale in search of what Max Collins had promised in the introduction. The anticipation of what to expect from the introduction, was in fact, the most exciting portion of the book.

I enjoyed Jeff Gelb's "Hot Blood" series. I have been looking eagerly for more in the series. When I saw this title put together by Mr. Gelb I just knew it would be great. Big mistake! Something went really wrong here. The stories are poorly written and read like a bad violent movie with the laughable love scenes. Silly nad disappointing.

Format: Paperback
This anthology centers on sex and violence. Most of the contributions are new stories that heat up the pages with torrid sex scenes. Although the authors are excellent writers, the basic flaw in this collection is that the short format does not lend itself to scorching bedroom scenes and a powerful mystery plot. FLESH AND BLOOD: EROTIC TALES OF CRIME AND PASSION contains well-written tales, but leans too heavily on the erotica at the expense of the mystery, leaving the audience to wonder who done it?

Format: Paperback
Mystery writer Max Allan Collins wrote many great stories for my earlier collections, Hot Blood, Shock Rock and Fear Itself. So he was a natural editorial partner for our new mystery anthology with an erotic twist, Flesh & Blood. We gathered together a powerhouse list of contributors who have delivered wonderfully sexy suspense stories. In fact, veteran thriller writer T. Jefferson Parker said, "Flesh & Blood is a wonderful addition to any mystery lover's bookcase. Kind of nasty, kind of grim, often funny and always entertaining - I enjoyed these stories very much." Hope you do too!
