Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Gorman and Greenberg (Stagecoach) have chosen an outstanding selection of 2005's novellas for this sterling anthology. Two of the best are from Transgressions, edited by the late Ed McBain: his own strong 87th Precinct story Merely Hate and Sharyn McCrumb's The Resurrection Man, a brilliantly told mystery that would burnish any literary collection. From Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine come Joyce Carol Oates's Honor Code, a study of an adolescent girl's misery; Doug Allyn's bleak Wolf Woman Bay; Clark Howard's twisted double-cross Arizona Heat; and Steve Hockensmith's Gustav Amlingmeyer, Holmes of the Range, a comic tale of the cowboy Sherlock and Watson of the old West. Dick Lochte's Diamond Dog and Carole Nelson Douglas's Junior Partner in Crime contribute dogs, cats and grins, while Jeremiah Healy's Grieving Las Vegas may surprise fans with its darkness. Finally, Brendan Dubois's The Temptation of King David adds a special hook to a biblical tale. (Oct.)

From Booklist

What can you say about a roster that includes Joyce Carol Oates, Sharyn McCrumb, and Ed McBain, except read this book? Editors Gorman and Greenberg aren't kidding when they call these the finest genre novellas of the last year: McBain's 87th Precinct story, Merely Hate, for example, is a top-of-the-line installment in that long-running series, and on the soft-boiled side of the coin, Carole Nelson Douglas' Junior Partner in Crime, narrated by Midnight Louie Jr., is sure to delight the cozy crowd. Most anthologies have a couple of also-rans for every winner. This one has a mere 10 stories, but they're all winners. Pitt, David

Good collection, GREAT title story Aug. 30 2013
By janet fairchild - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you liked The Burning of Rachel Hayes, run, don't walk, to get hold of Hayes author Doug Allyn's many other award-winning stories. Wolf Woman Bay is one of those -- a mix of racism and environmental destruction from the 19th Century is revealed when the son of the Native American woman the sawmill town at Wolf Woman Bay considered a prostitute returns to his mother's home.

Few of us today know anything about the 19th Century strip-logging of American forests which was conducted in the same spirit of the white men who drove whole buffalo herds over cliffs for quick profits.

But although the reader will remember the environmental lessons Allyn's stories give, his ingenious solutions to his mystery stories and the rich characterizations of his characters keep the reader wanting more by Allyn. And there is more -- just look him up on Amazon!
