Number-one New York Times best-selling author John
Sandford—“one of the great summer-read novelists of all
time” (Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly)—selects the
best mystery writing of the year that “will have you on
the edge of your seat” (USA Today).
“Some people might tell you that crime short stories, unlike
the more precious kind, are a kind of fictional ghetto, full
of cardboard characters and clichéd situations. Not true.
These stories are remarkably free of bullshit—although
there’s always a little, just to grease the wheels,” writes
guest editor John Sandford in his introduction. From an
isolated Wyoming ranch to the Detroit boxing underworld, and
from kidnapping and adultery in the Hollywood Hills to a
serial killer loose in a nursing home, The Best American
Mystery Stories 2017 hosts an entertaining abundance of
crime, psychological suspense, and bad intentions.
