This book is divided into three stories based on one concept, guy walks into a work place and starts shooting...quite interesting if u ask me. This will be broken down by each author.

Richard Laymon, 4 out of 5 stars.
I loved this one. It was dark and gory and very scary, very exciting it really keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has your really rutting for Sharon. It had lots of blood and the end reinforced my belief in karma.

Edward Lee, 2 out of 5 stars
This one I didn't like as well. I have read a book by Edward before and loved it so I was looking forward to reading this and it disappointed me. The story was base heavily on religion and that turned the story off for me. I like the idea of conspiracy but Edward didn't really do a good enough job with it then I would expect him to have done. And then ending reminded me of The Beast House by Richard Laymon, with the kidnapping and forced pregnancy. Did like it to well at all.

Jack Kechum, 3 out of 5
This one was enjoyable although I wished Stroup killed he's ex she was a real bitch. But at least he got a 2 million dollar book deal out of it all. ( )

This was a fun book based on a fun idea. Each of the three novellas are based on the same idea: a mystery person comes to a workplace bent on destroying someone who had no idea why they were being targeted or even who the psycho was. Originally it was going to be a collaboration but due to circumstances and killer ideas, it morphed into a collection by the three authors instead. And as would be expected, the three novellas are awesome. And while similar, they are very different too. It was cool to flip back and forth between the stories and see exactly where and how they are different; that is until that major diverting point where nothing is similar anymore. This book is highly recommended!

"Triage" by Richard Laymon takes the concept and runs with it: basic office workers, set in today and go!
"In The Year of Our Lord: 2202" by Edward Lee moves the action into the future (I'll let you figure out what year). He builds an interesting future (not one that I would want to live in) and the story culminates in a point that I didn't really see coming. Not sure if it exactly fit but it was enjoyable.
"Sheep Meadow Story" by Jack Ketchum sort of cheats a bit because the required idea occurs in a dream and not the reality of the story but it sets the tone for the story which becomes more hard boiled noir than anything else. ( )

only read the Laymon story. It was okay if a fun and gruesome sort of way, but not required reading. I want to read the Ketchum tale in this someday, though. The Edward Lee story didn't spark my interest for some reason. ( )

Both novellas by Ed Lee and Richard Laymon are top-notch, the short story by Jack Ketchum though is just eh. ( )

Just "ok" is the best I can give this trilogy of novellas from 3 of horror's best and most prolific authors. The hook for this novel was to have each author start his story with the same beginning. In this case, it was a young woman who took a threatening call with the speaker proclaiming, "I'm gonna get you!".

Laymon's story was the best of the lot because it was so true to his style of writing. Quick, filled with action, heavy on gore and sexual connotations, and a satisfying ending. His fans won't be disappointed, but then again, won't find anything new with his story, "Triage".

Edward Lee's story, "In the Year of Our Lord: 2202", was the most unique of the trio. This story, the longest of the threesome by a wide margin, was certainly the one with the greatest departure from what was expected. Lee's story is sort of a "horror in outer space tale" that will please science fiction fans more than horror fans. I've not read a lot of Lee's work, but this certainly wasn't what I expected. It's not that it was a bad story, it's just that it didn't appeal to me and wasn't what I anticipated when I picked up the book.

Jack Ketchum's story was both the best written and most frustrating. It's the shortest of the three and for a while, I thought that Ketchum was just "phoning" it in. He really glossed over the unified beginning and set on to a depressing tale about one of his recurring characters, "Stroup". Great writing and an ending I didn't see coming saved the story for me.

Unfortunately, "Triage", promises more than it delivers, in my humble opinion. Fans of the three authors will want to give it a look, just don't expect too much. ( )
