Rating: 8/10 (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner
The twenty contributions that make up this collection for the most part live up to the title as each tale occurs on a hot and sultry night. The stories run the gamut of crime fiction with a few seemingly more thriller than mystery. The contributors make up some of the top talent in the genre. It is this not surprising that all the tales is solid and entertaining though a few are superb. A HOT AND SULTRY NIGHT is aimed at the genre generalist as it crosses a diverse series of lines. Anyone who prefers a particular sub-genre will most likely find at least a story or two in the anthology, but must decide the economic value.
