(From the publisher):
From traditional mystery stories with devious doings and a plot full of clues to terse thrillers with edge-of-the-seat climaxes to the nail-biting tale of psychological suspense, no field of popular fiction can match contemporary crime writing in diversity, excitement, cunning, or satisfaction.
In this exemplary anthology of the year's best offerings - selected by the acclaimed editing team of Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg - armchair detectives, suspense addicts, and crime solvers alike will thrill to stories by Robert Barnard, Laura Lippman, and Max Allan Collins. So sit back and enjoy the most talented crime writers doing what they do best, as they steal the heartbeat, challenge the mind, and tease the intelligence of readers everywhere.
