I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Goodreads First Read Program and I thank Quirk Books from the bottom of my heart. I love mystery books and this anthology did not disappoint. I found many of the stories piqued my interest in some way and I found new mystery authors to read. If I had to pick my favorite, it would have to be The Five Dollar Dress from my favorite mystery author, Mary Higgins Clark. Here is a run-down of the stories: The Five Dollar Dress: 5 stars, great intrigue with an ending I didn’t see coming. White Rabbit: 3.5 stars, good premise, predictable. The Picture of the Lonely Diner: 4 stars, not much happens but good description of New York. Three Little Words: 5 stars, brilliant, suspenseful. Damage Control: 2 stars, no suspense, sad, didn’t like characters. The Day After Victory: 5 stars, great suspense. Serial Benefactor: 2.5 stars, great suspense, no ending. So disappointed. Trapped!: 5 stars, hysterical, suspense in a theatre, written as a one-act play. Wall Street Rodeo: 1 star, didn’t hold my attention, fell asleep, didn’t care. Copycats: 4 stars, gritty, intense, post-war crime story. Red-Headed Stepchild: 5 stars, modern-day Cinderella with a suspenseful twist. Sutton Death Overture: 5 stars, mysterious disappearance of a rich beauty, surprise ending, brilliant as it kept me guessing. Dizzy and Gillespie: 3 stars, mother and daughter live in a run-down apartment in Harlem, annoying neighbor, mysterious deaths, good intrigue with a dash of Harlem. Me and Mikey: 1 star (although to be honest, I’d give it a -10), pointless drivel, hated main characters and I loved Sopranos, whiney MC drove me to drink lol. Evermore: 5 stars, Edgar Allan Poe and a two-bit crook meet in an alleyway in this fast-paced time travel suspenseful story. I could see this as a television show. Chin Yong-Yun Makes a Shiddach: 3 stars, not for me, Chinatown mystery. The Baker of Bleeker Street: spies, Germany infiltrating America during WW2 and an Italian baker. Fabulous spy thriller. I wanted more. My Overall Rating: 4 stars
