Disappointing In spite of works by Ruth Rendell, Faye Kellerman and Antonia Fraser this book is not the best example of ladies of mystery By far, the most entertaining piece is A CASE FOR CLARA CATES by Carol Jensen Watts An OK book to bring with you while you sit in the waiting room at the doctor s office. Great collection of short mystery stories written by women, with female protagonists Stories were originally published in Ellery Queen s or Alfred Hitchcock s Mystery magazines My favorite stories included Stowaway by Mary Higgins Clark, Chain of Terror by Patricia McGerr, and Night Vision by B.K Stevens. My favorite this is like comfort food when you re sick Short mystery stories, by women starring women These are a bit dated the book was published in 1992 , but the stories are by and large good The one by Paretsky was one I ve read elsewhere, so that was a bummer, but the rest were new I wouldn t kill to get this book, but it was a fun and easy and mindless diversion. This was a good collection of mysteries I really enjoyed most of these, and that s unusual for me I generally find them lacking for endings and prefer to read full length novels as a rule Of course there were still some I enjoyedthan others I particularly likes Kellerman s Discards and Chain of Terror by Patricia McGerr still, I think I ve found a few new authors to look out for Ann Perry s Digby series looks fun, as well From the pages of the world s two most acclaimed mystery magazines, Ellery Queen s Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock s Mystery Magazine, here are fifteen stories of women sleuths stories that have helped transform the conventions of the genre Numerous best selling and award winning writers comprise this entertaining collection, many of who appear here for the first time in this book From cops to private eyes in extraordinary situations, these heroines face danger and solve crimes with daring and panache Some of them are old friends, while others are introduced here for the first time Amanda Cross s Kate Fansler looks into the disappearance of a fellow professor Antonia Fraser s Jemima Shore, TV journalist and investigator, is hired by a newlywed to find his missing bride Patricia McGerr s Selena Mead, government agent, plays the dual role of victim and level headed operative in an exciting thriller Sara Paretsky s widely renowned V I Warshawski gets involved in a complicated game, literally Ruth Rendell s heroine undergoes a liberation from her former self and Mary Higgins Clark highlights the heroic side of womankind in her story of a stewardess and a stowaway From mystery to thriller, to the lighter side of the genre, these exciting stories will thrill and delight mystery fans, both male and female alike This rich collection is thoughtfully chosen to represent the best of this fascinating and compelling genreContents Introduction by Cynthia Mason Stowaway by Mary Higgins Clark Constitution Street by Janet Stockey A pair of yellow lilies by Ruth Rendell Discards by Faye Kellerman The girl who wanted to see Venice by Antonia Fraser Chain of terror by Patricia McGerr Tania s no where by Amanda Cross Old friends by Dorothy Salisbury Davis A case for Clara Cates by Carolyn Jensen Watts Guilt feelings by Celia Fremlin A little research by Joan Hess The upstairs flat by Elizabeth A Dalton The Takamoku joseki by Sara Paretsky Digby s first case by Anne Perry Night vision by BK Stevens I love anthologies and this is one of the best from some of the top women of mystery Makes a very good read on the run kind of book for those times you can t just sit down and snuggle in for a long read.
