This is a series of fifteen stories based around one re occuring item... A Charm Braclet. It features other well known authors such as Lee Child, Kelley Armstrong and Lynda La Plante.
The first story is by Karin Slaughter and it begins with the braclets creation in 1803 in Georgia. Its not written in her usual style as per the Grant County or Will Trent series of books. So if your buying it after reading these, like me you may be dissapointed. The following stories see the braclet travelling around and through time, passing through the hands of various people (in some very tenous links) and leaving a horrible trail of misfortune.
Non of the stories really held my attention and I found it a chore to read. For me the issue with the short stories in this series is they are so incredibly varied in setting and characters, and just as they get get going they wind down again.
If your looking for short stories then this may be for you but if you prefer to get your teeth into something then I would give it a miss. On the plus side its very well written and there are a couple of stories that really stand out.
