Many of the contributors herein are novelists themselves, displaying their talents in short story form: Michael Connelly tells a fatal tale of revenge in "Two-Bagger." In Joe Gores's "Inscrutable," the Feds beat the Mafia at their own game. Stuart Kaminsky demonstrates how horribly wrong things go when a robber gets cocky in "Sometimes Something Goes Wrong." And Robert B. Parker shows just how important Jackie Robinson's fans can be in "Harlem Nocturne." Also featured are veterans of the short story form and favorites of this series. Brendan DuBois's "A Family Game" introduces a former Mafia family trying to lead a normal life in the Witness Protection Program. Joyce Carol Oates tells a chilling tale of a crush taken too far in "The High School Sweetheart." A tenant sneaks into the murder crime scene next door in Michael Downs's "Man Kills Wife, Two Dogs." Readers will be captivated by all the stories herein, whether by famed novelists or masters of the short story.
