Review of Nowhere To Go by Iain Rowan

An ordinary man who finds himself caught up in a bank raid gone wrong. A murder caught on security camera where the victim doesn't exist. A man with just months to live, who is already living in hell but decides to take on the devil. A mob accountant babysitting a hired killer on a trip to the countryside, and a burglar on an easy job who finds it might not be so easy after all. A con-artist conned, and what a man will do when in the grip of an obsession more important to him than his own life.

Eleven crime stories first published in Alfred Hitchcock's, Ellery Queen's, and elsewhere by award-winning writer Iain Rowan. Eleven stories of what people do when there is nowhere left to go.

4 stars

Nowhere To Go is an anthology telling stories about people who have "nowhere to go" due to various situations they in which they find themselves.  As with all anthologies there were stories that I liked more than others, but on the whole this is a very strong collection.

I won't give a breakdown of all of the stories though I will say that The Remains of My Estate was by far my favorite.  If you are a fan of suspense, crime, thriller, or even a little bit paranormal this is a great collection to check out.  Iain Rowan has opened my eyes with this collection to the fact that he is an author to keep an eye on.  Well done.
