Publisher's Summary

When a different kind of justice is needed—swift, effective, and personal—a new type of avenger must take action. In Vengeance, best-selling author Lee Child, "a superb craftsman of suspense" (Entertainment Weekly), presents 21 riveting stories from some of today's top crime writers.
In our dangerous world, offenders cannot always be brought down by the justice system. They must be stopped by someone outside the law. Some call them vigilantes; others claim they are just another brand of criminal. In Dennis Lehane's "The Consumers", a suburban woman hires a hit man to target her husband, who has committed a terrible crime. In Karin Slaughter's "The Unremarkable Heart", a dying woman learns the truth about a dark family secret. In Michael Connelly's "A Fine Mist of Blood", LAPD Detective Harry Bosch discovers a witness who will lead him to the doorstep of a hardened killer. And in Lee Child's "The Hollywood I Remember", an assassin gets his long overdue comeuppance.
Edited and with an introduction by Lee Child, these stories reveal the shocking consequences when men and women take the law into their own hands.

it's all in the voice

I never write reviews, EVER. However, I have felt compelled to comment on this collection. Many of the shorts are good and a few are very good. Yet, at times I have found myself laughing out loud to the accents the narrators put on. Their normal American voices are great and easy to listen to, it's just when they apply an accent. For example, one short is based in England. The writer actually uses the words "slap and tickle" (which in itself made me cry laughing) and the accent that this was accompanied with made it sound like something from a really poor Aussie soap. There are many other instances of this happening. So actually I think my advice would be if you get this book, you might enjoy it, but not for the reasons you think!
