About this item

Forty one fantastic stories from Britain's best crime writersThis superb annual anthology of the year’s most outstanding short crime fiction published in the UK is now well into its second decade. Jakubowski has succeeded, once again, in unearthing the best short crime stories of English, Welsh, Scottish, and Irish authors (along with a handful of U.S. writers living in the UK, and some expatriate Brits). With this collection he showcases the impressive breadth of British crime writing, from cozy tales of detection to noir mayhem and psychological suspense and terror. There are puzzles to solve, nagging questions about the nature of British society, and, above all, there are over 40 wonderful, gripping stories to shock, delight, and make you think twice, if not three times. The full list of contributors is as follows: Lee Child, Kevin Wignall, Will Carver, Paul Charles, Val McDermid, Paul Johnston, Alison Bruce, Tim Willocks, Maxim Jakubowski, Rhys Hughes, Edward Marston, N. J. Cooper, Michael Z. Lewin, Peter Guttridge, Mary Hoffman, Peter Tremayne, Kate Rhodes, Paul D. Brazill, Ros Asquith, Amy Myers, Alexander McCall Smith, Nina Allan, Peter Turnbull, Jay Stringer, Martin Edwards, Zoë Sharp, Col Bury, David Stuart Davies, Howard Linskey, Susan Everett, Christopher Fowler, Dreda Say Mitchell, Roger Busby, Simon Kernick, Peter Lovesey, David Hewson, Gerard Brennan, Jane Casey, Christopher J. Simmons, Stephen Gallagher, and John Lawton.
