Deadly Allies II
Private Eye Writers of America and Sisters in Crime Collaborative Anthology
"From Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Edgar Allan Poe to Dorothy Sayers and Ellery Queen, the best mystery writers have always favored the short story. And the tradition is alive and well in Deadly Allies II, the second collaboration between the two most influential mystery writers' organizations in America - Private Eye Writers of America and Sisters in Crime." "This exciting new anthology of previously unpublished works once again features thematically paired stories - one by a member of PWA, the other by a SinC - that are sure to generate provocative contrasts for the readers. S. J. Rozan and Loren D. Estleman provide classic tales of private eyes whose clients think their money can buy anything; Max Allan Collins and Faye Kellerman remind us of how terrifying utter helplessness can be; Marilyn Wallace and Benjamin M. Schutz explore the passionate revenge of discarded lovers." "These and eight other pairings - of such luminaries as Jeremiah Healy and P. M. Carlson, Sarah Shankman and John Lutz, Joan Hess and Michael Collins - will keep mystery buffs up reading long in the night."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
