The Best American Crime Writing

(2002)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
Included in this first volume are Mark Singer's up-close look at the wildly popular, very illegal world of cock-fighting, first featured in The New Yorker, E. Jean Carrol's Spin story, "The Cheerleaders", on how an idyllic town - the model for Bedford Falls in It's a Wonderful Life - was ravaged by rapes, murders and suicides; and David McClintick's "Fatal Bondage" from Vanity Fair, the tale of a grifter with an attraction to sadomasochistic sex and serial killing. Intriguing, entertaining and compelling reading, THE BEST AMERICAN CRIME REPORTING is destined to become a much-anticipated annual.
