‘Uncommon Assassins’ Resurrects the Beauty, Power and Fear From the Days of Alfred Hitchcock

In this creepy, thrilling anthology, readers will find all kinds of murder and mayhem delivered at the hands of paid assassins. Not just UncommonAssassinsany assassins, mind you; the authors who have contributed to this book have wrapped their stories around everything from hit men to vigilantes to some truly violent executioners. In other words, the title doesn’t lie. These are the most unusual and uncommon killers that readers will most likely ever see.

The locations are extremely odd, the plots are totally unusual and, in essence, every suspense/horror sub-genre is covered. From political to historical to supernatural and science fiction – every type of ‘strange’ incident is captured.

All total there are twenty-three tales of murder in this anthology that could all find a spot in The Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. And, although the general theme weaving through each story challenges the reader, some of the tales may be a bit ‘way’ over the top for most readers.

On of the most memorable is a story called, “Everybody Wins.” This was certainly an eye-opener, and readers will find it hard to believe at times that anybody wins. And in “Fat Larry’s Night with the Alligators,” some readers will actually begin to feel sorry for the gators in that they had to spend any time at all in Fat Larry‘s company.

Challenging stories, each and every one, there are a great deal of twists and turns in this book that’s filled with very twisted characters. Some stories have been likened to Stephen King, and although Mr. King is the ‘Master of Horror’ and has written some really bloody scenes over the years, they were stories that went on to take their place in the history of ‘great literature.’ Although there are a few golden nuggets in this particular anthology that will meet the needs of millions of readers who love horror tales, there are many who will definitely not see this to be anywhere near the brilliance of King.

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy
