Summary

Summary

Desire leaves a man destroyed … A young girl’s curiosity reveals secrets better left hidden … An accidental encounter on a train ends violently … Ambition leads to a curious exchange … An uncanny likeness changes two lives forever … Here is a novel in sixteen chilling parts, linked by a glittering charm bracelet that brings misfortune to everyone who handles it. In Like a Charm, the best of British and American crime writers combine for a must-have collection. From nineteenth-century Georgia, where the bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, a steam train across Europe, the violent backstreets of 1980s Scotland, present-day London, a Manhattan taxi, the Mojave Desert, and back to Georgia, each writer weaves a gripping story of murder, betrayal,  and intrigue.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s fascinating to see some of my favorite crime novelists coming together to create a taut, tense thriller; the chapters stand alone as powerful stories, yet they also combine seamlessly into a great read. Genuinely gripping.” Harlan Coben
“Like a glittering noose that seems to grow tighter...this collection of stories by crime fiction comets...is as sinister as it is irresistible. Editor and contributor Karin Slaughter...follows her acclaimed third novel A Faint Cold Fear with this series of tales mysteriously linked by a bracelet that is stolen, found, and lost. But even that artful device gives no hint of the dark corners, sharp twists, and delectable terrors that make this a jewel of a find for fear fans everywhere.” Jacquelyn Mitchard
“A diverting introduction to fifteen of the more interesting crime writers now at work.” Washington Post
“Erickson’s well-timed presentation of odd characters, titillating content, obsession, and insanity animates the diverse chapters into a taut and coordinated thriller. This unforgettable novel is written in sixteen parts by prestigious mystery writers from America and England, including Lee Child, Denise Mina, and Lynda La Plante.” AudioFile
