Publisher's Summary

Matt seeks out a paranoid visionary who claims to have defeated an entity just like Mr. Dark. His quest takes him deep into the Michigan woods — and into a bloody siege between warring, paramilitary factions in James Daniels’ "The Beast Within".

In Jude Hardin’s "Fire and Ice", Matt is trapped inside an industrial plant during a deadly shooting rampage. As the body count rises, the cunning Mr. Dark raises the stakes to horrifying new heights, putting thousands of lives at risk.

Matt is working security on the midway in Bill Crider’s "Carnival of Death". But when violence breaks out and a fake fortune teller’s dark prophecies suddenly begin coming true, Matt knows that Mr. Dark has arrived and it’s not for the cotton candy.

They can't all be jewels.

The Beast Within, written by James Daniels, is by far the worst entry in this series. it does not make any sense and does not fit into the story. James Daniel seems to be infatuated with racism and should never have even tried. it's basically a white power story and adds no value to the series. Lee Goldberg should be insulted for having this as a part of his collection.

This third volume is by far the weakest so far. So bad, that if I had not already bought the sequel, I would be done with the series. I like the concept of this book, and it seems a lot could be done with it. Each book has three stories, written by different authors. Some authors will write more stories in other editions. James Daniels was the only repeat in this book and he was one of the weakest authors in previous books. I will say he had the best and I would give The Beast Within a B+.
The other two stories by authors I have never heard of, where run around shoot-em ups. No story at all.

Hopefully vol 4 will perk up my interest again.
