Treacherous: Grifters, Ruffians and Killers was my first foray into the writing styles of author Gary Philips it was a cool read or should I say reads? The said title is a collection of short stories by the author the strong points for me are the different tones and feels of each story presented in the anthology. The way the author details the characters makes me have an instant attraction to the characters which is what one hopes to achieve when writing a short story. The overall project was just cool, it didn't wow me but it did entertain if you are a fan of mystery titles I say give it a go!
