As I have mentioned in a previous post, I enjoy short stories. In this small collection, Ms. Cartmell also gives an excerpt for Steps to Heaven, which I totally enjoyed a few months back, and others with short stories.
In each story, she keeps you on edge. “No Mercy” is the events of a soldier being burnt to a crisp in his kitchen. It’s another Sergeant Major Crane SIB Investigation, as was Steps to Heaven.
Two leads are perused with impressive results, but the possible murder suspect isn’t apprehended. It may have been the victim, who set himself on fire, or it was a domestic violence situation that led to his death. She had No Mercy.
“What if…?” is a different twist on domestic violence. This may or may not have ended in a boom. “Another Satisfactory Day” has a marriage end in a comical and resolving day for the wife.
Wendy keeps the reader involved and interested. She has mastered storytelling.
