It’s tough to find the connective tissue that binds together these short stories—except that none of the topics are pleasant. Narrator Bronson Pinchot does a great job with the clarity of the text, though a bit of horror and outrage in his voice would be welcome in some of the more horrible stories, for example, the tale of a wealthy fifteenth-century child killer. The stories jump around in time and space with quirky topics: selfish spies, a WWII soldier missing his girlfriend, avalanches in the Swiss Alps. One is set in the future, when Amsterdam is flooding. Despite the disturbing topics, each story is fascinating. One complaint, however, is the lack of demarcation from the abrupt ending of one story to the beginning of the next.
