9780440223252: Women on the Case

These are stories of P.I.s who keep guns in their handbags--or their bras, of crime victims, homeless women, and housewives whose ordinary lives take a brutal, sometimes fatal twist. This collection brings several brilliant international authors to American readers for the first time, including Amel Benaboura, Irina Muravyova, and Helga Anderle. Mystery fans will also enjoy new works by familiar voices Sara Paretsky, Elizabeth George, Amanda Cross, Ruth Rendell, Antonia Fraser, Frances Fyfield, and many more contemporary masters.

Review:

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:

Sara Paretsky is the author of 20 books, including her renowned V. I. Warshawski novels. Her many awards include the Cartier Diamond Dagger Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Crime Writers' Association and the 2011 Mystery Writers of America's Grand Master Award.
