42 Word Review: The Cemetery Man (and Other Darkside Tales) by Bill Pronzini

The Cemetery Man (and Other Darkside Tales) by Bill Pronzini (Perfect Crime Books, 2014) Bill Pronzini’s great talent for capturing character and setting, so effective in his mystery novels, is frittered away in this collection of dark short fiction spanning 1976-2013, yielding mostly unsatisfying vignettes and denouements that rest on skewed reinterpretations of the stories’ titles.
