Synopsis:

For many years, some of the most vital, creative, and exciting fiction published in America has been in the field of mystery, crime, and suspense. Now Robert B. Parker and Otto Penzler - both Edgar winners - have assembled the best that 1996 had to offer: twenty terrific, titillating tales from such masters of the genre as Elmore Leonard, Elizabeth George, James Crumley, Jonathan Kellerman, and Andrew Klavan, newcomers such as Brad Watson, and well-known literary writers such as Joyce Carol Oates and Michael Malone.

About the Author:

Otto Penzler is the founder of the Mysterious Bookshops and the Mysterious Press and an Edgar Award winner. He lives in New York City.

Parker is the internationally best-selling author of the Spenser mysteries. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
