Description
One singularly unlucky charm bracelet and a cross-section of the most critically acclaimed and award-winning practitioners of the new noir combine to present an explosive and dazzlingly inventive suspense novel. Like a Charm presents 16 interconnected stories that chart the journey of the charm from nineteenth-century Georgia, where the bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, a steam train across Europe, the violent backstreets of 1980s Scotland, present-day London, a Manhattan taxi, the Mojave desert and back to Georgia, each writer weaving a gripping story of murder, betrayal and intrigue. The incredible array of contributors includes Lee Child, Val McDermid, Laura Lippman, and Peter Robinson.

Desire leaves a man destroyed ... A young girl's curiosity reveals secrets better left hidden ... An accidental encounter on a train ends violently ... Ambition leads to a curious exchange ... An uncanny likeness changes two lives forever ... Here is a novel in sixteen chilling parts, linked by a glittering charm bracelet that brings misfortune to everyone who handles it. In Like a Charm, the best of British and American crime writers combine for a must-have collection. From nineteenth-century Georgia, where the bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, a steam train across Europe, the violent backstreets of 1980s Scotland, present-day London, a Manhattan taxi, the Mojave Desert, and back to Georgia, each writer weaves a gripping story of murder, betrayal, and intrigue.
