My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading Pandora's Succession so when I started reading this one I was happy to see one favourite character pop up in two of the three stories.  While these stories are very short, Russell somehow manages to jampack a fair bit of suspense into each and it left me wanting more.

I also have to admit that To The Last Bite definitely had me gagging a bit at the ending, but I enjoyed it none the less.

If you've never read anything by Russell Brooks I recommend reading this one first... It's a great appetizer :)
