Summary (From the publisher):

The Private Eye Writers of America was established to promote and honor the finest practitioners of the detective novel. Now, in association with this prestigious organization, Signet Mystery is proud to publish The Shamus Game, a brand-new collection of short stories- all written especially for this volume by a distinguished group of Shamus Award-winning authors, fresh new voices, and mystery veterens...

When some case files are stolen fron his office, Amos Walker walks a thin line to uncover a blackmailer's identity in Loren D. Estleman's "Necessary Evil.".

In Rick Riordan's "Ticket to Midland," Tres Navarre's investigation into a kidnapping may result in a ticket to nowhere for a hopeless mother.

Jerry Kennealy's insurance investigator Nick Polo is having second thoughts about the reliability of a "Reluctant Witness.".

The Nameless detective tracks a shakedown artist who's bitten off more than he can chew in Bill Prozini's "The Big Bite."
