    The "Best Stories" series is one of the great joys of

    The "Best Stories" series is one of the great joys of reading. Each year, a collection of "Best" books are issued for "Best Short Stories", "Best Mystery Stories", "Best Science Writing", etc. The editors seek to put together the best recent work by both well-known authors and by writers who deserve a wider audience.

    Robert Crais is a terrific choice to edit the 2012 "Best American Mystery Stories" because he is a current writer whose own writing style owes a debt to the best American mystery writers of the 1940's and 1950's. In this collection, he has brought together writers with a variety of styles, some of whom are famous, some of whom deserve to be famous. These stories share one thing: each is an excellent story written by a talented writer.

    Anyone who reads mysteries will greatly enjoy BAMS 2012.
