    • Meh. It was ok. Didn't realize Anne Perry edited it until just now. It is an anthology and unless the editor is Ellen Datlow, I tend to ignore the editor info. Perry edited this work and contributed one story. None of the stories knocked my socks off. They weren't bad, but not good enough to recommend to others.


    • The first story "Cain Was Innocent" by the editor was very interesting and with many Biblical references, and the ending was a very clever twist. All the other stories were barely worth reading, and I thought I was wasting my time to read them! I love the Bible, and seek for it to apply to my daily living, and the rest of the stories, including another one by the editor for which I had high hopes, had the most vague relationship to the Bible. I would NOT recommend for anyone to read this book - [...]


    • This is an anthology of mystery stories inspired by biblical and apocryphal stories -- Cain and Abel, the Exodus from Egypt, Lot in Sodom, David and Bathsheba, Judith and more. Some of the stories are very well-written and are surprisingly good. The collection, as a whole, is a bit uneven.




    • Perry edits a collection of mysteries. Enjoyed some more than others. Didn't feel the connection for the collection.


    • This whole anthology was very mediocre. None of the stories were truly bad. It was just that none of them were anything I couldn't have lived without reading.
