These 22 short stories are all written by women active in the mystery and suspense field. You will find familiar names such as Sue Grafton, Faye Kellerman,Nacy Picard and many others.

The editor made good selections; the overall qualityof the stories was quite good.

Notable standouts were:

"The Locked Tomb Mystery" by Elizabeth Peters. A neat historical mystery set in ancient Egypt===loved the setting.

"Blue Curacao" by Susan Kelly. An excellent tale of a woman held hostage during a robbery.

"Counsel for the Defense" by Lia Matera. Well written, with an totally unexpected twist and the end.

Recommended as a good sampling of the mystery field at the time it was printed---there are several later volumes btw. An excellent range of stories and authors for any mystery or suspense fan.
