I gotta say while I'm not a huge fan of books that comprise of many short stories I thoroughly enjoyed this very much I won the book through Goodreads and I want to thank uirk books for being so generousWhile some of the stories weren't nearly as exhilarating as others many were extremely well written Each author clearly has expertise in writing mysteries I forgot how much I loved mysteries until I read this I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for uick thrills and impressive curious plots This includes a play among other things and each style is a great transition from the last This for a fact makes you yearn for mystery And as I read thank you to Mary Higgins Clark for her work in this Absolutely riveting

The Five Dollar Dress Mary Higgins ClarkA young woman looking through her deceased grandmother's things makes an unsavory discovery regarding an old crime It's not bad but I expected a bit The writing style felt a bit clunky and overly straightforward She did this Then she did that In addition the way the eventual 'discovery' was presented felt too easy leaving a detection loving reader feeling a bit cheated White Rabbit Julie HyzyThis one started off playing into one rather tired trope and then 'twisted' into a different but eually tired trope At Central Park's 'Alice in Wonderland' statue a young woman reading is approached by a pushy and annoying young man who insists on making small talk But what are the real reasons either of these two are there on this particular day The Picture of the Lonely Diner Lee ChildBrief piece featuring Child's popular character Jack Reacher It's not bad it does an especially nice job conjuring up Madison Suare Park but I found the interaction between Reacher and an FBI agent he encounters to be a bit unbelievable why on earth would she be so forthcoming Overall I think readers who are already familiar with the books in this series would probably appreciate it Three Little Words Nancy PickardA doctor tells a young woman that unfortunately her cancer is terminal and suggests that she make a 'bucket list' However just a few days after her diagnosis the woman is violently murdered Whodunnit The story gets a lot of suspects into a limited amount of pages but I finished it feeling like I'd been 'led around' by the author just a bit too much Damage Control Thomas H CookA man's former foster child is found dead of an apparent suicide The tragic death leads him back to consider the reasons why he kicked her out of his house Were they justified The story does a nice job of illustrating how different perspectives on the same facts can lead people to come to very different conclusions The Day After Victory Brendan DuBoisWWII has just ended and a street sweeper cleaning up after the victory parade has a chance encounter with a man waiting on the street or is it really a chance meeting Serial Benefactor Jon L BreenAn elderly man tells his young granddaughter about an old mystery he's tried to solve Back in his day when he was a Broadway actor a serial killer was offing some of the reprehensible characters on the theater scene and he suspected it was someone he knew Not bad but not terribly memorable either Trapped Ben H WintersThis is the one I picked up the collection for after reading Winters' 'Last Policeman' books I was interested in checking out of his writing I was a little surprised to find this is a humorous piece about Broadway theater but it was uite good That said I feel I would've enjoyed it even if I'd ever read or seen Deathtrap I suspect that real theatrical insiders would find it even hilarious Wall St Rodeo Angela ZemanIn an old timey New York an unprincipled con man tries to take advantage of a young Irish boy in hopes of securing a fortune But things don't uite work out the way he hopes A fun and heartwarming little tale Copycats NJ AyresNice period feel to this one probably the best piece of writing in the book so far This long story introduces us to a group of young men from the Lower East Side to are deployed in WWII together Their wartime experiences change them and afterward they go in different directions One becomes a cop but others take other roads Red Headed Stepchild Margaret MaronWoe betide those who cut a girl's hair against her wishes Sutton Death Overtime Judith KelmanAt a mystery writer's group attended by an obnoxious journalist one writer divulges the plot of her next true crime novel But why would she 'give away' so many details I felt like the ending was supposed to be an emotional kicker but it didn't really work for me Dizzy Gillespie Persia WalkerConflict between long time residents and a new neighbor in a dilapidated Harlem townhouse takes an unexpectedly heartbreaking twist Well crafted but very very sad Me Mikey T Jefferson ParkerHard boiled and no punches pulled This is a tale of two brothers in a Mafia family It feels very cinematic not really like a true 'insider's' perspective but I think it works pretty well Ever Justin ScottTime travelling Edgar Allan Poe and an on the lam bank robber pull off a heist together Silly but rather funny Chin Yong Yun Makes a Shiddach SJ RozanHeartwarming cozy about a Chinese mom with hidden depths that neither her Private Investigator daughter nor her lawyer son guess at The Baker of Bleecker St Jeffery DeaverFascist spies on the LES during WWII I didn't really connect with any of the characters and I thought the 'patriotic' content came off as sappy rather than inspiring Overall there were some decent stories here but the collection didn't live up to my expectations overall Those expectations were fairly high considering the 'Mystery Writers of America' stamp of approval In general I think this is a genre that tends to be successful in a longer formatMany thanks to uirk books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read in exchange for an honest review
