Summary (From the publisher):

Eleven stories from Shamus Award-winning crime novelist Ed Gorman that demonstrate both his range and his storytelling versatility.

The collection opens with "All These Condemned," the story of two brothers and one shocking secret, and "A Girl Like You," an almost mystical story about a young man coming to grips with the meaning of love. "The Way It Used to Be" features a small-town teenage bigot, while a famous 1920s mobster is the lead in the somewhat whimsical "The New Man." The chiller ""Judgement" is about a Catholic priest, and a very unlucky stick-up artist plies his trade in "Ghosts."

One of Gorman's favorite themes- lost love and its consequences- surfaces in "That Day at Eagle's Point," and a tabloid TV news piece provides the basis for the shocking title story.

In "Aftermath" a woman struggles to recover after being raped by a policeman, while the woman in "Eye of the Beholder" struggles with the effects of her own beauty. The final story, "Angie," is a stunning, Hitchcockian take on a small-town good-time girl who isn't quite what she seems.
