"Twenty deliciously spooky stories from the country's best mystery writers"

Fresh Fiction Review

Crimes By Moonlight
Charlaine Harris

Reviewed by Sharon Galligar Chance

Mystery Anthology

Vampires, witches, ghosts, and other things that go bump in the night are the focus of a new anthology of short stories from 20 of the best and brightest mystery writers in America.

Edited by Charlaine Harris, author of the popular "Sookie Stackhouse" vampire series, CRIMES BY MOONLIGHT: MYSTERIES FROM THE DARK SIDE includes a wide array of spooky and spine-chilling stories from favorite mystery authors such as Carolyn Hart, Harley Jane Kozak, Elaine Viets and Barbara D'Amato, plus works from lesser-known but equally talented authors who are all members of the Mystery Writers of America.

There is a little something for everyone here. Harris leads off with a brand new vampire story featuring Dahlia Lynley- Chivers, one tough vampire chick. Author Lou Kemp retells the story of the ghost ship, The Flying Dutchman, in his story "In Memory of the Sibylline." Harley Jane Kozak brings a ghostly story of motherhood and purple haired witches with her tale, "Madeeda" and Carolyn Hart give a delightful update on her ghostly amateur sleuth "Bailey Ruth" in her story, "Riding High." Barbara D'Amato's contribution, "The Conqueror Worm," is a chilling look at email gone bad, and Elaine Viet's "The Bedroom Door" tells about a door that foresees the deadly future for members of one family. Even Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer comes by for a stroll with Max Allan Collin's story "Grave Matter."

All twenty stories featured in CRIMES BY MOONLIGHT spotlights the individual flavor of each author's writing, resulting in a kind of smorgasbord of mystery selections for fans of the genre.

Read one, read them all, but read these tales -- but not in the dark!
