The Mysterious Bookshop Presents the Best Mystery Stories of the Year 2023 EPUB
Amor Towles selects the best mystery short stories of the year, including tales by Andrew Child, Jeffery Deaver, and T.C. Boyle.
In his introduction to this volume, guest editor Amor Towles pays tribute to the forgotten person of the mystery storyâthe cadaver. âMale or female, old or young, rich or poor,â he writes, âfor over a hundred years the cadaver has been accommodating, gracious, and generally on time. There is no other figure in crime who has proven to be more reliable.â
Like the cadaver, this anthology series, now in its third year of publication, is also proving reliable, bringing to readers the finest mystery/crime/suspense stories of the year from a variety of sources including mystery and general interest magazines, anthologies, online publications, and literary periodicals.
Among the treasures collected herein are Jeffery Deaverâs âDodge,â in which a chess match between a volatile woman and a U.S. marshal takes a surprise twist; âThe Landscaperâs Wife,â a suspense-filled tale by Brendan DuBois that explodes all expectation; and Kerry Hammondâs âStrangers at a Table,â which offers a darkly witty homage to Agatha Christieâs Miss Marple.
The collection contains well-known authors such as T.C. Boyle and up-and-comers such as Jessi Lewis; it features tales with famous crime-fighters (Jack Reacher and Sherlock Holmes) and a bonus story from the annals of mystery history by Edith Wharton. In short, these pages promise something for every reader of crime fiction, no matter the particularities of his or her taste.
