Overview

From hearts and flowers to erotic obsession, from crimes of passion to the savage gentility of the Victorian gentry, here is love and death in infinite variety, a unique and unprecedented collection of original, never-before-published short mysteries by some of America's bestselling authors. It's the ultimate recipe for love gone wrong, sixteen acclaimed writers - eight men and eight women - offering vastly different perspectives on love, murder, and the opposite sex, in short fiction that proves all great passion lasts a lifetime...however brief that may be.

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.
