Product description

Product Description

In this anticipated follow up to Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine’s first digital-only anthology, you’ll once again take the “low road” of grifters, hit men, and other career crooks, and come out with new insights into crime, revenge, and justice. Your path—led by stars like Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Lawrence Block, Edgar Award winner Doug Allyn, 2012 Agatha Award winner Dana Cameron, 2012 Dilys Award winner S.J. Rozan, and Edgar winner Edward D. Hoch—is winding, taking you through byways both humorous and deadly. You’ll follow the Prohibition-era gangsters of Mark Coggins and Lou Manfredo, and the contemporary mafiosos of Janice Law, Ed McBain, and Diamond Dagger award winner Peter Lovesey. With small-town scams and big-city hits, 2012 Shamus Award winner Michael Z. Lewin, film and television writer William Link, and award-winning novelist Andrew Klavan offer some comic relief, while Edgar nominee Kevin Wignall, Andrew Taylor, bestselling author Peri O’Shaugnessy, and EQMM Readers Award winner Clark Howard remind us where the Crooked Road can often lead. Edited by Janet Hutchings, this volume will surprise you with favorite series characters, dark humor, high stakes, and edge-of-your-seat suspense. Hold on tight, and don’t miss it!
