Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All-new from the top names in mystery and fantasy— including a never-beforepublished Sookie Stackhouse story from Charlaine Harris!

This follow-up to Powers of Detection showcases bestselling and award-winning names from Simon Green to Laurie King to Sharon Shinn—with original stories featuring otherworldly investigators trailing uncanny criminals across fantastical realms. From video game characters seeking civil rights and a cave dragon loan shark pondering an investment, to Santa Claus’s Australian vacation and an enemy of Sam Spade’s out for revenge—plus visits to the Nightside and Sookie Stackhouse’s hometown— these stories will take readers around the world on a magical mystery tour.

Review:

"This follow-up to Powers of Detection (2006) breaks no new ground, but offers 12 stories with enough well-paced variety to keep readers happy. In Charlaine Harris's notable Sookie Stackhouse tale, 'Lucky,' one insurance agent's good luck makes him a target. A 'resurrected' Humphrey Bogart is murdered in Carole Nelson Douglas's 'Bogieman' while Santa Claus investigates the murder of an elf in John Straley's 'Weight of the World.' On the lighter side, a divorce gets used to a menagerie of ghostly housemates in Sharon Shinn's 'The House of Seven Spirits' and a young woman confronts a cave dragon turned loan shark to solve her father's disappearance in Laura Anne Gilman's 'Illumination.' Strong tales outnumber the weaker ones by a considerable margin and will satisfy fans of both genres." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
