In his introduction, guest editor James Patterson observes, "I often hear people lamenting the state of Hollywood . . . If that's the case, I've got one thing to say: read these short stories.

Spanning the extremes of human behavior, The Best American Mystery Stories2015 features characters that must make desperate choices: an imaginative bank-robbing couple, a vengeful high school shooter, a lovesick heiress who will do anything for her man, and many others in "these imaginative, rich, complex tales" worthy of big-screen treatment.
