Editorial Reviews

Review

"The 20 entries in this superior anthology exhibit the storytelling gifts of authors both familiar and not [...] This volume is a must for mystery aficionados."
Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

"20 gems […] Child’s selections seem especially appropriate for 2021, a year that promises change on so many fronts."
Kirkus STARRED REVIEW

"There is such a wide variety here, in terms of literary style and subject matter, that it’s hard to imagine a genre fan who would not find something to treasure. The book belongs on the shelf next to such essential anthologies as the Best American Mystery Stories series and Akashic Books’ voluminous Noir series."
Booklist

"A delicious mix of style and subgenre―there isn’t a weak link in the bunch."
Library Journal

"It’s no stretch to say these were some of the best short stories from 2020, and the collection is sure to have something for everyone―from those who like traditional mysteries to those who like thrillers or noir stories."
Reviewing the Evidence

"While a best mystery stories volume can be expected to include many quality works, the editors for this particular piece have outdone themselves. The quality and variety in this collection mean that any reader should find something to enjoy if they appreciate mystery or crime at all. Murder, theft, classic detective and no detective all fit within the short but entertaining volume. Heartily recommended."
A Green Man Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.
