There's a marvelous mixture of mystery material in this collection of short fiction by and about women--from bestseller Nevada Barr's wrenching story about a daughter's discovery in her mother's garden to impressive entries from Russia, Germany, and Algeria by writers less famous, but equally talented. This is the perfect bedside companion for readers looking for a way into the genre, or searching for new writers to expand their mystery horizons.About the Author:
