About this title


Eighteen mystery writers create original stories based on the same simple premise

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.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
