I enjoyed the collaborations of the authors in this anthology. As is usual in an anthology, I really enjoyed some short stories and others, not so much. Still, if you're a fan of suspense, it's a good read.

Admittedly, I did not read all the stories in this anthology, only ones by authors and featuring characters I already have read. So my opinion is limited to those. But I thoroughly enjoyed reading a new story with Harper Connelly by Charlaine Harris, a new Joe Pickett adventure by C.J. Box, a short story about Jack Reacher by Lee Child. Their interactions with new-to-me characters by authors I am not familiar with were fun but not going to be enough to entice me to read novels of such.
