Description:
Guest editor Lee Child selects the very best mystery stories published in the past year, including tales from Stephen King, Sara Paretsky, James Lee Burke, and even a posthumous story from Sue Grafton! If you're a fan of the mystery short story, you won't want to miss this anthology. Selected by #1 bestselling author Lee Child: the twenty finest short stories of 2021.There is no finer form for a crime than the short story. WIthin a few pages, a clue can be discovered, divulged and its significance determined; all else is mere embellishment. The classic mystery tale will be familiar to aficionados and casual readers alike: it was invented by Edgar Allen Poe, popularised by Arthur Conan Doyle, and perfected by Agatha Christie.But mystery fiction has changed a great deal over the years - as have all things -and the writers within these pages present far more than a simple case of crime and resolution. Far from predictable, these stories provide fertile grounds of aberrant circumstances
