Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Penzler suggests that these tales of murder instigated by passion might suit Valentine's Day or wedding anniversaries. Whether that's true or not, these stories, all written for this collection, should appeal to most readers. Authors include Bobbie Ann Mason, Anne Perry, Ed McBain, and William Caunitz.
