Summary (From the publisher):

Personally chosen by acclaimed writer Tony Hillerman, the foremost chronicler of the modern west, here is a dazzling collection of extraordinary mystery tales. Included in this chilling anthology are twenty stories of suspense and deceit, all written especially for this collection. Explore the haunted and dark side of the land with some of the brightest stars in contemporary suspense. The list of renowned contributors reads like a who's who in modern mystery fiction, and includes: J.A. Jance, John Lutz, Stuart M. Kaminsky, Lia Matera, Bill Pronzini, and many more.

In settings that range from a torpid Arizona trailer park, to the freezing and isolated Alaska bush, from a narrow-minded Texas cowtown to California's lost coast, from the high-voltage glitz of Las Vegas to the repossessed farmlands of Iowa, this unique anthology hisses, rattles, and stings with a vengeance.
