My Review

ENTANGLED is a collection of four suspense novellas that stand completely on their own with no reference to the other stories in the collection. One story tells about an FBI agent and the woman and her children who he is trying to protect. Another tells of a kidnapping and the detective who investigates. The third is about a mysterious illness that attacks an Olympic hopeful pole vaulter. The last story tells of a newlywed woman who finds herself part of her husband's side job trying to unravel a terrorist threat. Each story is unique, with a constant underlying feel of danger, and a climatic ending. Recommended to suspense fans!

I enjoyed each of the stories in this collection. Abramson's, Luke's, and Black's stories were my favorites of the group. Poulson's story felt a little disjointed to me, mostly in regards to the dialogue (there were several phrases that just didn't sound like something someone would say) and some of the things that happened felt really unrealistic. Luke's story wasn't a suspense in the sense of the others... it's more just trying to figure out an illness, but it was very interesting. I'm sure there could have been more development in places, but they are all short stories. Overall, they were all well-written and I liked all the characters.

In the end, was it what I wished for? These four novellas were entertaining, suspenseful, and held my interest. I would definitely recommend to suspense fans.

Content: Some violence due to the genre, but clean.
