About this title

Synopsis:

Challenge to write a story based on the premise of a young woman found murdered in her apartment, eighteen top mystery and suspense writers--including Bill Pronzini and Loren Estleman--contributed to this unique collection. Reprint. PW.

From Publishers Weekly:

Inspired by a single premise--"a young woman is found dead on the apartment floor"--this collection of stories has a nice quota of top-notch tales ranging from procedurals to horror to science fiction. In Nancy Pickard's evocative "The Dead Past," a psychiatrist tries to help a young girl who is afraid of everything and everyone. The father in Andrew Vachss's "Anytime I Want" brutalizes his daughters, killing one and prompting his sons to take revenge. In the not-so-distant future of Barbara Paul's "Who What When Where Why," investigative reporting is too dangerous to be done in person, and a freelancer seeks to avenge the destruction of the beautiful simulacra who carries out investigations in her stead. In "Darke Street" by Gary Brandner, an elderly woman buys a brief span of gorgeous youth. The creative madman who narrates Rex Miller's "Still Life with Gold Frame" must write voluminously or die. Another sort of madman comes to grief with a cat in Teri White's "Merlin and the Hit Man." There is enough variety and change of pace here to maintain the interest of both the casual and addicted mystery reader.
