Summary (From the publisher):

Crime and detection are women's work for twenty-six great writers in this second brilliant collection of mystery fiction edited by Sara Paretsky. From wicked irony and white-collar crime in Amanda Cross's "The Baroness," to the chilling "Only a Woman," Algerian writer Amel Benaboura's English-language debut, here are voices known and unknown at home and abroad, as familiar crime turf in America and England is expanded to Russia, Algeria, Austria, Germany, and South America.

From Ruth Rendell's lovelorn secretary to Eleanor Taylor Bland's Asian-African college professor, the women characters in these tales are girlfriends who collaborate to catch a thief...or get away with murder; P.I.s who keep guns in their handbags...or their bras; crime victims, homeless women, or housewives whose ordinary lives take a brutal, sometimes fatal twist. But in each case, a master storyteller has created new, powerful fiction that plumbs the depth and breadth of a woman's art.
