Series: Best American Mystery Stories

Summary (From the publisher):

After just three years, The Best American Mystery Stories series has made its name as the foremost mystery anthology, earning raves from such diverse sources as Joyce Carol Oates and Entertainment Weekly. Now grand master Donald E. Westlake continues the series' impressive tradition with The Best American Mystery Stories 2000. Among the selections are "Grit," from Tom Franklin's Edgar Award-winnign collection, Poachers, in which an enterprising bookie gets his due; Jeffery Deaver's "Triangle," in which jealousy and possessiveness turn deadly; Shel Silverstein's "The Guilty Party," in which a judge carries out ironic justice; and "Running Out of Dog," in which Dennis Lehane explores the dark side of friendship. From fifty exceptional stories chosen by series editor Otto Penzler, Westlake has selected the twenty best, for a collection that will delight mystery buffs and casual readers alike.
