Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Traditional mysteries and the short story form have been a perfect pair since Poe and Conan Doyle; this outstanding collection of original tales carries on the combination of genres. Brevity is no detriment to characterization here. D. R. Meredith's Maude Turner is a sharp-eyed, kite-flying senior citizen who turns detective in the murder-by-kite-string of one of her colleagues. Diane Mott Davidson's O. Henry-esque tale features a protagonist at the other extreme: after a fight with his best friend, sixth-grader Arch wanders off and finds his school principal's body discarded in the creek. ("Cool! Can we go see it?" his friend replies when Arch reports the news.) Plots and locales vary from a zoo's gorilla compound, where Charlotte and Aaron Elkins's murderer tries to pass off his deadly work as a terrible accident, to P. M. Carlson's 19th-century period mystery featuring Lillie Langtry, who is threatened with the kidnapping of her niece. The contributors avoid cliche while remaining true to the genre, accomplishing Peters's ( Crocodile on the Sandbank ) goal of celebrating the traditional mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thirteen Excellent Mysteries Sept. 1 1997
By N. Sausser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Every one of these mysteries is very good, which is sometimes unusual in an anthology. If you are a fan of Diane Mott Davidson, Sharon McCrumb, Joan Hess, Charlotte MacLeod, or Carolyn G. Hart, you will love this book. There's not a clinker in the bunch

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring Nov. 22 2005
By C. Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was disappointed in this anthology of mysteries. I was looking forward to reading some good mystery stories and discover a few new authors while I was at it. These all seemed to be written by amatuer writers, and the stories were boring.
