Eighteen gripping stories about relationships from some of the top mystery writers working today.
From the Civil War-era south to 1950s New York to the present day's gritty cities and seemingly innocuous suburbs, these stories chart the complications - always surprising, sometimes deadly - that arise between lovers, dear friends, and even complete strangers coming together for a single, shocking encounter.
In Lee Child's Safe Enough, a blue-collar city boy takes up with a wealthy suburban wife, with dire consequences. In Harlan Coben's Entrapped, a woman's husband disappears and is replaced by a handsome impostor. In Laura Lippman's One True Love, a high-end prostitute seeks a radical solution to a PR problem. In P. J. Parrish's One Shot, a man returns to his childhood home to learn the truth about a long-ago tragedy.
Other contributors of original stories include Ridley Pearson, R. L. Stine, Jim Fusilli, Jeff Abbott, Charles Todd, and Tom Savage.
