This installment of the Sisters in Crime series is an entertaining mix of stories, most of which were above average for an anthology. I like the wide range of stories from straight mysteries where an investigator solves a crime to more general stories were crime takes place to character studies of criminals and those who hunt them. I think this is one of the better entries in the series. I wish there were more of these books.

A good anthology enables me to sample new writers. I'll probably never go back and reread this, but I'd recommend it to anyone who was looking for women writing mysteries (as I would recommend the others in the series).
I loved these stories! Short stories are much more difficult to write than novels because they cannot contain filler. This was a collection by extraordinary female writers in the early 1990's. The volume can appeal to those who enjoy short stories or serve as an introduction to the writers.
