Description

In his introduction, guest editor James Patterson observes, "I often hear people lamenting the state of Hollywood . . . If that's the case, I've got one thing to say: read these short stories. You can thank me later." Patterson has collected a batch of stories that have the sharp tension, drama, and visceral emotion of an Oscar-worthy Hollywood production. Spanning the extremes of human behavior, The Best American Mystery Stories 2015 features characters that must make desperate choices: an imaginative bank-robbing couple, a vengeful high school shooter, a lovesick heiress who will do anything for her man, and many others in "these imaginative, rich, complex tales" worthy of big-screen treatment.

The Best American Mystery Stories 2015 includes Tomiko M. Breland, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Brendan DuBois, Janette Turner Hospital, Dennis Lehane, Theresa E. Lehr, Joyce Carol Oates, and others

        Starred review from August 31, 2015
        The 20 entries in series editor Otto Penzler’s 19th annual best-of mystery compilation share a fine sense of character along with solid plotting and minimal violence. Classism, racism, and revenge all figure in Doug Allyn’s “Snow Angel,” about the death of a logger’s daughter. Tomiko M. Breland’s lean prose powerfully illustrates the past, present, and future of five girls and a teacher involved in a devastating school tragedy in “Rosalee Carrasco.” Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch and Dennis Lehane’s Patrick Kenzie join forces in “Red Eye,” ensuring an instant fan favorite. A never-robbed bank practically invites criminals in John M. Floyd’s amusing heist yarn, “Molly’s Plan.” Sly wit shows in Jeffery Deaver’s “The Adventure of the Laughing Fisherman,” in which a loner emulates Sherlock Holmes. A kidnapping’s aftermath haunts a family—and others—in Janette Turner Hospital’s creepy “Afterlife of a Stolen Child.” Guest editor Patterson has assembled a superb anthology that never disappoints.
