    1. This lists as a single item, but it contains five full-length books. I felt that two of the five books were not at all funny and took precious time that I could have spent reading something better. However, it's a real treat to be able to purchase five books for 99 cents. These incredible bargains allow me to become familiar with authors I've never heard of, authors who are just starting out, authors who aren't affiliated with the larger publishing houses who don't get the press attention they [...]

    2. DIFFERENT PROTAGONISTS, BUT GOOD ENTERTAINMENTCrime solvers and attorneys are always on the side of upholding the law, and even more importantly, common decency. Intermixed with the crime solving are the rueful smiles verbal haha's coming from readers entertained by folks and country bumpkins living their lives in Southern United States.

    3. Great Bedtime readGreat Bedtime readEclectic mix of locations and characters.Very talented authors,some obviously better than others. good chance of reader having new finds in the genre.

    4. All 5 crime novels are goodUsually in a collection, I expect to read one pretty good book and some others that are lacking. In this collection though are five good stories. Comic may be a bit of overlabelling, but definitely worth the read.

    5. Good readingAll of the authors did a good job of keeping you turning the pages. Fun to read, was different to see comedy in crime novels.

    6. I actually never finished this. Just read the first story and it was so bad I decided not to read the rest. Not one sympathetic character and a very unsatisfying story and conclusion. Still trying to figure out what's so funny about them.
