You'll get more than kicks riding through these 16 tales of murder on the road. Author Carolyn Wheat has assembled a diverse team of authors and narrators covering every style and every rest stop between Chicago and L.A. These stories run the gamut from excellent to merely good. Most are nostalgic period pieces set between the Depression and the 1970's. Barbara Rosenblat demonstrates her wonderful versatility reading "A Flash of Chrysanthemums" by J. A. Jance and "Incident on 6th Street" by D.R. Meredith. This reviewer's favorite was "Rappin' Dog" by Dick Lochte, a private-eye story told from the perspective of a precocious teenaged girl, read beautifully by Dana Lubinsky. S.E.S.

Nostalgia for America prior to the Interstates can be found in Murder on Route 66. This short story anthology contains 16 tales that vary in time but all take place at various stops along America's first federal highway. Each story is read by a different reader who collectively do a good job and provide support to the tales' entertaining storytelling. The authors include John Lutz, D.R. Meredith, and Barbara D'Amato, to name a few. Each contributor lives or has lived in towns along Route 66, information that adds to the anthology's overall success. Whether a tale concerns assassins, smugglers, or just plain murderers, these action-filled stories are well worth the trip. Highly recommended.ADenise A. Garofalo, Mid-Hudson Lib.
