No Way Home (A Zoe Chambers Mystery) (Volume 5) - Annette Dashofy
This is one of my favorite series by Henery Press. Zoe Chambers is an Emergency Medical Technician. She is also working to become a detective. She is also dating - maybe more - the police chief of Vance Township, Pete Adams.

In this book, we find someone has shot the county commissioner and there's a girl who's died of an overdose all in the same day. There's not a lot of murders in this small township. So for there to be two in one day - okay something's going on.

This leads both Pete and Zoe scrambling to figure it out. Pete because he's the chief and Zoe because the commissioner died while riding his horse which was boarded in her stable and on her trails.

There's lots more bodies, intrigue, shootings, suspense, and mystery with a whole list of suspects in this unputdownable book. It may be a cozy mystery, but this one had my heart beat racing.

Thanks to Henery Press for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

No Way Home
No Way Home (A Zoe Chambers Mystery) (Volume 5) - Annette Dashofy

This was a great addition to a series that I have already grown to love. Zoe and Pete are back and this time are left trying to solve a couple murders. Zoe has to go to New Mexico when he friend Rose's son is a suspect in a murder and Pete is trying to figure out who killed county commissioner Dale Springfield. Pete also is left to deal with a sudden rise in overdoses.

 

I really enjoyed both Zoe and Pete's storylines in this book and how they eventually tied together. Zoe finds herself once again in danger (what else is new) but she receives help this time from a Navajo man who tries to stop a dangerous man from killing her. 

 

I look forward to reading more about Zoe and Pete. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Review: No Way Home, novella collection by Lucas Bale, J. S. Collyer et al

Rating: 3*

 

Synopsis:

Stories From Which There is No Escape. 

Nothing terrifies us more than being stranded. Helpless, forsaken, cut-off. Locked in a place from which there is no escape, no way to get home. 

A soldier trapped in an endless war dies over and over, only to be awakened each time to fight again - one of the last remaining few seeking to save mankind from extinction. 

In rural 70s England, an RAF radio engineer returns to an abandoned military installation, but begins to suffer hallucinations, shifts in time and memories that are not his own. 

A widower, one of ten thousand civilian space explorers, is sent alone to determine his assigned planet's suitability for human colonisation, but stumbles across a woman who is part of the same programme and shouldn't be there at all. 

A suicidal woman in a poverty-stricken near-future America, where political apathy has allowed special interests to gain control of the country, takes part in a particularly unpleasant crowd-funding platform, established by the nation's moneyed elite to engage the masses. 

An assassin from the future, sent back in time to murder an insurgent, is left stranded when he fails in his mission and knows he will soon cease to exist. 

These sometimes dark, sometimes heart-warming, but always insightful stories and more are to be found in No Way Home, where eight of the most exciting new voices in speculative fiction explore the mental, physical and even meta-physical boundaries that imprison us when we are lost.
 
 
My Review:
This is a nice collection of novellas, particularly if you've not read any of the authors before. It's a relatively quick and easy way to see whether you like these short stories before trying a full- length novel.
 
On the whole, I enjoyed this collection. Some stories I preferred, but all are full of suspense and thrills., 
 
*I received an ARC of No Way Home in return for my honest review*

NYX: No Way Home - Marjorie M. Liu,Kalman Andrasofszky The art is really nice, the characters interest me, the story is barely coherent.
