This review is from: The Best American Mystery Stories 2011 (Paperback)
Among the twenty stories were three I had read in the collections: Agents of Treachery and Warriors. All three were solid but just a caution that you too may experience some overlap from other works. I really enjoyed "Something Pretty, Something Beauitful", it followed four buddies spiraling out of control. There was an interesting "No Country for Old Man"-vibe to "Who Stole My Monkey?". The coldness exhibited by the lead character as the plot unfolds in "Ride-Along" is chilling. "Flying Solo" was a tidy tale of two old gents seemingly knocking something off their bucket list. And I really enjoyed the period pieces: "What His Hands Had Been Waiting For" set in 1927 and the return of a burnt out veteran in 1918 in "The Stars Are Falling." I would not categorize all the stories as "mysteries" but the majority do entertain.
