What they’re saying:
(
“Killer at the Door is a macabre collection of eight short stories, each with either a touch of murder and mayhem. Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson, sisters who co-author, have put together an awesome collection of short stories. While reading, I felt as if I were being held in a mind puzzle. Is it him? Is it her? Who the heck do you believe? I wanted to yell, “No! Don’t trust him!” or “Run! He’s the murderer!” I never knew who was going to turn out to be the killer. All the short stories are cleverly written by this duo. My only complaint is that I didn’t want them to end!
