Sometimes you can't sugar-coat things, or water them down, or put them eloquently. Sometimes you just have to say it, and be in-your-face and blunt. That's Guilt in a nutshell.

Guilt is a collection of short stories by an attorney. They aren't about the attorney, they're about the characters and the victims. They're about life, and consequences, and foolishness and regret, and why we do the things we do.

The thing about short stories is they're supposed to make you think, and what you leave out is sometimes more important than what you put in. I read this collection a while back, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about the stories, and I'm just now beginning to understand them.

Well-written and uncensored, Guilt is sure to stay in your mind and inspire you for a long time.

Content/recommendation: There is some violence and sexuality. Ages 18+
