“Revenge is certainly not a dish served cold in this short-story collection.”—The Guardian
“Sounding worrying like a manual for angry Bobbitt types, this anthology of short stories looks at ways of serving up the cold dish of revenge. This is an entertaining set of modern Tales of the Unexpected.”—The List
“Neat little narratives in which women exact an ironic or fitting revenge on the boorish, neglectful or philandering men who have wronged them. But there are ghoulishly delectable pleasures to be had….”—The Independent
“These are deliciously wicked stories. Revenge has never been sweeter…or sexier.”—M.J. Rose
“A kick-ass anthology—funny, sexy, wicked, sad and positively blood-curdling by turns. Getting Even should probably be banned – it’ll give revenge-seekers far too many ideas!”—Lauren Henderson
“The stories in this collection tread the very thin line between harmless fun and sheer bitterness. Some could be held accountable for stirring unsavoury sentiments in readers who are looking for a good way to get their own back.”—The Big Issue
