About this title
The ten stories in this collection revolve around secrets, lies—and crime. Kristine Kathryn Rusch, called one of the best short story writers of her generation, has compiled ten of her best mystery stories into one volume. Here you’ll find cats who watch corpses decompose, a woman juror who has secrets of her own, a futuristic detective who lies for a living, and half a dozen others whose lives get touched by a mystery. Included are four stories considered among the best in their year of publication, “Patriotic Gestures,” “G-Men,” “The Perfect Man,” and “Jury Duty”; Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine Readers Choice winners, “Details,” and “The Secret Lives of Cats”; Shamus nominee “Discovery”; Hugo nominee, “The Retrieval Artist”; and Edgar nominees “Cowboy Grace” and “Spinning.” “Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s crime stories are exceptional, both in plot and in style.” —Mystery Scene Magazine “Rusch is a great storyteller.” —Romantic Times “[Rusch’s] short fiction is golden.” —The Kansas City StarAbout the Author:
USA Today bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch writes in almost every genre. Generally, she uses her real name (Rusch) for most of her writing. Under that name, she publishes bestselling science fiction and fantasy, award-winning mysteries, acclaimed mainstream fiction, controversial nonfiction, and the occasional romance. Her novels have made bestseller lists around the world and her short fiction has appeared in eighteen best of the year collections. She has won more than twenty-five awards for her fiction, including the Hugo, Le Prix Imaginales, the Asimov’s Readers Choice award, and the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine Readers Choice Award. Publications from The Chicago Tribune to Booklist have included her Kris Nelscott mystery novels in their top-ten-best mystery novels of the year. The Nelscott books have received nominations for almost every award in the mystery field, including the best novel Edgar Award, and the Shamus Award. She writes goofy romance novels as award-winner Kristine Grayson, romantic suspense as Kristine Dexter, and futuristic sf as Kris DeLake. Her popular weekly blog on the changes in publishing has become an industry must-read. She also edits. Beginning with work at the innovative publishing company, Pulphouse, followed by her award-winning tenure at The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, she took fifteen years off before returning to editing with the original anthology series Fiction River, published by WMG Publishing. She acts as series editor with her husband, writer Dean Wesley Smith, and edits at least two anthologies in the series per year on her own. To keep up with everything she does, go to kriswrites.com.
