A Random Coincidence

When I review stories, sometimes they're requests by authors that I've reviewed in the past, but, most of the time, they are just random selections form my latest Amazon search: Kindle store>Literature & Fiction>Last 30 Days...then I have to scroll past countless porn titles with bikers, cowboys and vampires - oh, my!

When I saw the cover for Look by Bart Hopkins Jr., it reminded me of the cover for Coffee Break Murder Blues, and it wasn't until after I read the story did I realize it was the same author...I guess, on a subconscious level, I am a Hopkins fan. I should've recognized the writing style, but I was too wrapped up in the plot.

Look is a flash fiction piece with a surreal setting. I don't know if it is the cover or the description, but I thought it might be a smut story. (No, that's not why I chose it.) It's actually one hell of a POV from a stalker. I found the line about ten thousand dollars so intriguing, I would have read an entire novel based on that offer the captive makes to her captor.

I think I might have to read more of the author's work...

As always,
