    “I’ve mentioned before that reviewing anthologies, short story collections, or any short story is different and slightly more difficult than reviewing a larger piece. The reason being with less material there’s a greater chance of giving the story and ending away. Now, less material does not mean less story, less impact, less craft. No, there are times when a short story will pack more punch than any full length novel. I discovered Falcon’s Bend a few years back through a previous publisher and am glad to see the series thriving and growing. Listed as a Mystery/Police Procedural this series as the feeling of a cozy…coming home to a familiar setting and character-friends. The difference between Falcon’s Bend and cozies is its boldness. The authors have found a balance of small town closeness and strong edged crime, murder, and mystery. With a touch of the extra…see story Blind Revenge. Other aspects of collections/series are the similarities within each story. Not that authors copy or... More > repeat themselves, but plot patterns can be found, story rhythms felt as you read each book. Falcon’s Bend doesn’t quite fit this scenario. The main characters follow their established behaviours and so far they haven’t veered off illogically. The plots vary. However, the action centers on the main police characters more than anyone else in Falcon’s Bend. It’s not the community I know—it’s the detectives. Well, the exception might be in the short Fixated. Here we visit through the other side of the crime. With this all said and done, the bottom line is, when you’re searching for a solid police character driven mystery, Falcon’s Bend is the place. For me, it’s been too long and I’m glad to be back. What’s even better is I have a few more books, a few more stories to visit.” ~ChrisChat Review http://chrischatreviewsmystery.blogspot.ca/2012/12/falcons-bend-case-files-volume-1-early.html< Less
