One bracelet, sixteen charms …
From nineteenth-century Georgia, where the bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, the seedy underside of London’s Soho, a Manhattan cab, the frozen cliffs of Nova Scotia, and back to Georgia, each story takes the reader on a gripping journey of murder, betrayal, and intrigue.
In this multi-voice thriller, a charm bracelet constantly changes ownership. Wherever the golden jewel pops up, it sows death and destruction among the unfortunate finders. Karin Slaughter – the queen of the suspense – has invited successful thriller authors from the United States, England and the Netherlands to contribute to this blood-curdling chain story. Especially for this collection, they wrote a chapter that takes place at their favorite location.
