Good Behavior by Blake CrouchAfter reading Dark Matter and enjoying it so much, I thought I would try this. These are three short stories featuring Letty Dobesh, a thief and addict, with a mesmerising personality. There is a TV series based on Letty with Michelle Dockery in the title role. Crouch provides a commentary of how he got the idea for Letty, how the stories and the odd character were changed and rearranged for the TV series. The Letty stories come with twists and a sting in the tale, this behoves me to not spill the beans on the storylines and spoil it for others.
In The Pain of Others, Letty has been stealing from occupants of hotel rooms when two men, Arnold and Chase return early. Letty hides in a closet and hears plans to murder Daphne, the wife of Chase. Letty is unable to let this go, only to find her actions have unexpected consequences. Sunset Key has Letty being paid to spend the last night of freedom for a Kenneth Lay type of character on his island. The following morning, he will go to prison. Letty finds there is more planned for this evening than she has bargained for. The longest story is Grab, and it showcases Lettys talent as a grifter in a Las Vegas casino heist where nothing is as it appears.
Blake Crouch is certainly a gifted storyteller who spins yarns I want to read. Even with these short stories he succeeds admirably well in keeping the reader hooked with the character of Letty Dubosh. It does not take long to read this book of short stories and I can recommend them. Many thanks to Thomas and Mercer for an ARC.
