Any new reading by Roger Melin is probably going to be 5 *s, IMHO

Entertaining collection

(4 stars)

A collection of stories in different styles which should have something for most who enjoy fiction from this era. Generally good writing and addressing revenge from various perspectives. This reader is always excellent and the stories suit his style

absorbing, affecting, & amusing

(4 stars)

Interesting mysteries with romantic & other twists. All chapters are short but complete tales. Well narrated by Roger Melin (his usual). Nothing offensive - it's a little-known and underrated classic. Recommended.

This is one of the finest collections of short stories by a single author. Each story is unique and, despite the title , all are not about retribution. Then, of course, one cannot be other than pleased when the reader is Roger Melin.

Roger melin is the best Revenge is awesome
