This short story collection takes the reader on a wild ride over the speed bumps of human instinct and cunning. Some stories explore the dark side, places we go and choices we make as a species that we know we shouldn’t, but end up anyways. In total contrast, the humor weaved throughout this book will stay with you long after you turn the last page. From the cosmopolitan streets of Paris, to the sordid side of the Playboy Mansion, these stories will keep you wondering; will they get away with it or not?
