Well I've gone for 2 stars as they weren't really mysteries and most were Westerns. Okay if you are a fan of westerns. Unfortunately I'm not. The first story was the best of all of them and would have worked well as a full book.

This collection of short stories contains five short mystery/revenge tales and a preview of another full novel from the author. The first story shares the title of the collection and focuses on two detectives having lunch while discussing a current case. It's a good start to the collection as it's well-written, well-paced, and has a satisfying end result. Following that, however, are stories which go a bit down hill in quality. The next two stories ("The Hoosegow Strangler" and "Trail of the Lonesome Stickpin") feature the author's Old West husband/wife duo of Mick and Casey. They both read as young adult fiction, which contrasts starkly with the first story in the collection, and don't really do a good job of introducing the characters or making the reader care about them. The second of these (Lonesome Stickpin) is a bit of a mess in terms of pacing and narration -- there are parts of the story that are simply difficult to follow and the storyline isn't interesting enough to justify re-reading sections to follow the specifics. While the first three stories are more closely aligned with the mystery genre, the final two are tales of revenge. The fourth story ("Alibi") makes another stark transition to a modern tale of a planned homicide. Although somewhat interesting, it's a very quick tale that likely could have been better fleshed out. The final story ("The Promise") transitions back to the Old West and features a story about a dysfunctional family. Overall, i would give it two stars. The major upside is the quality of the first story. The collection was freebie when I got it and was worth downloading for the title story -- the rest could be easily skipped.
