HATE Anthology is comprised of ten edgy short stories full of mystery, mayhem and murder.  Some of the stories are quick and intense.  THE UNCLE HUNT and WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, STAYS IN VEGAS were so well done it was like reading a novel.  You will encounter a little bit of every emotion in this anthology.  I shuddered at some of the scenes, rooted for justice and my heart soared when a powerful romance was involved.
