Sinopsis: GREAT STORIES BY AN EDGAR WINNER
Wendy Hornsby does not write cozies, or tales about cat sleuths, or sanitized murder. Her tales explore the depths of the human psyche, and her family-crimes are decidedly uncozy. In the title story, which won the Mystery Writers of America Edgar for Best Short Story, a heart-wrenching mystery surrounds a family living on the Northern Plains during the Depression. "Ghost Caper" is probably the purest example of noir fiction by a modern mystery writer ? and it is not for those of delicate constitution. "High Heels in the Headliner" is about a police groupie whose adoration turns deadly.
Wendy Hornsby's collected mysteries contains ten stories and one essay. Two of the stories, including one about former LAPD officer Mike Flint, are written especially for this volume. Two of the other tales are co-written with Hornsby's daughter, Alyson.
The book includes a new introduction by the author, and a checklist of Wendy Hornsby's mystery novels and stories. Cover painting by Native American artist, Barbara Mitchell.
From Publishers Weekly:
Edgar-winner (for best short story) Wendy Hornsby gathers 10 stories and one essay into her Nine Sons: Collected Mysteries, which offers readers both whodunit thrills and thoughtful explorations into the darker regions of the human heart. Former LAPD officer Mike Flint sometime boyfriend of Hornsby's heroine in her Maggie McGowan series makes an appearance here, as he reflects on his career, his new home and how some cases including a mysterious car accident he's called to examine never get solved.
