Anthologies can be a mixed bag but every story in this one is terrific. (Disclosure - I wrote one.) You'll find clever, dark, funny, twisty, historical, and traditional stories, all very professionally written and edited. It was fun to sit with most of the authors at the reading at Bouchercon in Ralgih, where we each got to speak & read for three minutes. Then we signed a whole bunch of books. It was great!

A well rounded collection of short mystery fiction, beautifully edited by Art Taylor. I especially enjoyed "Walking the Dog" by J.L. Abramo, "Death of a Bible Salesman" by Sarah Shaber, and "On the Ramblas" by Robert Lopresti. A solid read.

I'm a contributing author ("The Sevens"), so I'm a wee bit biased. BUT I believe it's an excellent anthology. Enjoy!

This was an enjoyable book of short stories that was collected for the 2015 Bouchercon by editor Art Taylor.

This leads to a collection of well known and less known writers or in some cases, authors who rarely write short stories. I was fortunate to be at the Bouchercon in 2015 where I purchased my book and had it signed by all ...more

Half and half

Half were interesting but half were predictable so not much of a mystery. It gives you a sample of authors you might want to read more of and skip those you don't.
