Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What could drive you over the edge?

Maybe if you or someone you love had been victimized? Or if your spouse was having an affair? Or your life just wasn't turning out the way you always dreamed it would?

You want justice. You want to make things right. But you're out of luck. You have to live with it. There just aren't any options.

In this Mystery Writers of America anthology, New York Times bestselling author Lawrence Block has collected nineteen suspense stories exploring such scenarios, by some of mystery's most popular authors: Brendan DuBois, Noreen Ayres, Shelly Costa, Tom Savage, Tracy Knight, Aileen Schumacher, Elaine Viets, G. Miki Hayden, Elaine Togneri, Henry Sleasar, William E. Chambers, Stefanie Matteson, Charlotte Hinger, Dan Crawford, Rhys Bowen, Mat Coward, Marcia Talley, Elizabeth Foxwell, and Jeremiah Healy.

Two different stories in this collection have been nominated for the Edgar Award for Best Short Story — Those by Shelly Costa and G. Miki Hayden.
