“Greco has written an intriguing collection of quick, quirky short stories that deal with infidelity and revenge. They read fast and furious. The author has a good eye for dialogue and setting, and keeps all plots moving at lightning speed. Addictive and fun, in a dark sort of way, the endings are not all bitter, depending on whose side you take.” – Joseph Souza author of The Neighbor and Pray for the Girl
“John Greco’s short story collection, Bitter Ends, is jam packed with quick, nasty little numbers full of cheating and murdering spouses and twisty turns of fate.” – D.H. Schleicher author of Then Came Darkness

“John Greco’s stories delve into the dark side of human nature. What makes his stories particularly striking is that his characters (devious, at times creepy and horrendous) are also quite ordinary people who remind us that we too have a lot in common with them.” – Carol Balawyder author of Getting Mr. Right
“With a decidedly noir streak and some very surprising endings, this book of dark tales will intrigue and fascinate fans of mysteries.” – Jacqueline T. Lynch author of Ann Blyth Actress, Singer, Star and Comedy and Tragedy on the Mountain
“With finely drawn characters who leap from the page as living, breathing people you might see in your neighbourhood? Do you like getting inside the heads of these characters? Does the one-two punch of an unexpected twist, or even an expected twist, make you set aside a book with a satisfied smile? Okay. You are looking for John Greco’s Devious Tales.” Patricia Nolan-Hall – Blogger at Caftan Woman
Two short stories of revenge and murder. Available from Amazon.
- “The two short crime stories in this book read like hardboiled fiction. Like any good short story both stories in Murder with a Twist are tightly written and we jump into the action right away. Both stories were written from a woman’s point of view and whether in the first person view point (Salt Free) or the third person point of view (The Green Light) John Greco accurately portrayed the mindset of, in one case, a woman cheated by her husband and in the other a women using sex to get what she wants. I found the twists at the end of both stories to be surprising and satisfying. I’m hoping that these two stories are the beginning of a larger collection of stories by this author.” – Carol Balawyder author of Getting Mr. Right.
