Edit a book of short stories

An existing client approached me with a last minute book project they would like turned around in 5 weeks. I currently do not have the bandwidth to complete the editing in what would have to be about 2 weeks max to allow time for other book production tasks.

Thus I need to hire an editor for 10 fictional short stories by a Jamaican author totaling about 31,000 words. The genre slants towards urban/romance/contemporary fiction though I have not read all 10 stories yet.

The stories need a thorough line edit for clarity, organization, flow, spelling and grammar errors. Suggestions to improve the style, tone, point of view, word choice, sentence structure, plot, characterization and dialogue also sought.
