Review of Anyone Can Die by James LePore

Published: 2009
Publisher: The Story Plant
Pages: 48
ISBN-13: 978-1-61188-001-4
From Goodreads:

James LePore’s first novel, A World I Never Made earned raves from reviewers, readers, and fellow authors alike. Blogcritics called it, “An outstanding first novel, and a wonderful thriller.” Bella Online said, “I highly recommend this compelling suspense story filled with vivid characters and haunting storylines. A story that will stay with the reader long after the final pages.” And M.J. Rose, the acclaimed author of The Memorist said A World I Never Made was, “A compelling page-turner & one of those wonderful books with characters as strong as the story and a story worth reading. Don’t miss it.”

Now LePore returns to the characters of A World I Never Made to present us with three suspenseful and unforgettable stories:

Till Death Do Us Part: A young Pat Nolan and his wife are on their honeymoon in New Mexico when they find a bond they did not know they had as they are forced to confront trouble in the form of a surly trio of locals.

God’s Warriors: Megan Nolan, a cynical American woman on her own in Europe makes a life-changing decision that both reveals and belies her true character.

Max: Max French, a quirky, deadly and, in his own eyes, oddly lovable FBI agent faces a personal drama that will set the course of his future.

My thoughts:
When I saw this book up for review from the Pump Up Your Book virtual tour, I was very interested in reading it.  I haven't read any of James LePore's other books, but I thought this short story would be a good introduction to his writing.  There were three short stories in this book. The author says in his introduction that these stories involve the main characters from his book A World I Never Made.  My favorite short story in this book was Max.  This book is good if you are short on time and want to read some interesting little short stories.  I am interested in reading his book A World I Never Made to see how these characters all tie in to the story.

3/3 Diamonds
I liked it!
