AN04.01: 2004: LIKE A CHARM: 'THE INKPOT MONKEY'

DESCRIPTION
LIKE A CHARM: A NOVEL IN VOICES - an anthology of short stories from 15 mystery writers.
Edited by Karin Slaughter.

Desire leaves a man destroyed...
A young girl's curiosity reveals secrets better left hidden...
Jealousy drives a woman insane...
Ambition leads to a curious exchange...
An uncanny likeness changes two lives forever...
The hand of fate lies buried in the past...

From nineteenth-century Georgia, where a bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, the seedy underside of London's Soho, a Manhattan taxi, the frozen cliffs of Nova Scotia and back to Georgia, each writer weaves a gripping story of murder, betrayal and intrigue.
