The Best American Mystery Stories 3(2004)
(A book in the Best American Mystery Stories series)
An anthology of stories edited by James Ellroy and Otto Penzler
THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES is the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction in the genre, and this is the third volume to be published in the UK. For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundreds of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to the twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognised as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the BEST AMERICAN series the most respected - and most popular - of its kind. THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES 3 will thrill fans from all reaches of the genre. This year, bestselling and acclaimed author James Ellroy lends his talent to the series, offering pieces from the likes of Robert B. Parker, Joyce Carol Oates and Michael Connelly.
