Description

New York Times bestselling authors including Karin Slaughter, Lee Child, Peter Robinson, Laura Lippman, John Connolly, and others, combine their talents to deliver a brilliant tour-de-force in this clever suspense novel that revolves around one object--a charm bracelet--and the harrowing circumstances that plague the unlucky people who come into contact with it.

Linked by a glittering charm bracelet that brings misfortune to everyone who handles it, Like a Charm is a novel in sixteen chilling parts written by the cream of US and UK crime writers. 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.

A must-have collection for fans of suspense fiction, Like a Charm is a mesmerizing, masterful story that makes for compulsive, just-one-more-chapter reading.
