The Stories

J.D. Robb‘s “Chaos in Death” tries to identify a monstrous Dr. Chaos who gleefully murders people associated with an addiction program in New York City. Leave it to Lt. Dallas to call on all her friends to contribute their particular skills and knowledge. Fans of the series don’t want to miss this one as there are a couple of critical events in it.

May Blayney‘s “Her Greatest Treasure” brings together two deserving people.

Patricia Gaffney‘s “Dear One” is so sweet. Who knew the 900-number fraud could be such a positive experience? The social aspects of a 900-number brings a psychic into friendship with one of her callers and ends with two happy couples.

Ruth Ryan Langan‘s “Unforgiven” is a cute tale of a 400+-year-old ghost, Jamie Kerr, raging through Bree’s dead husband’s estate still angry after all these years at his wife and his best friend’s perfidy. Bree has her own rage with the Kerrs and between them, they learn to forgive.

Mary Kay McComas‘ “His Brother’s Keeper” was rather dissatisfying. It was a convoluted story and the character interaction was too simplistic with too many leaps.

The Cover and Title

It’s an old brick wall painted white with the title graffiti’d on in red. I didn’t find much in the stories to relate to Unquiet.
