Favorite Kills - Top Suspense Group

The writers of the Top Suspense Group return with FAVORITE KILLS, a collection of mystery and suspense stories picked out by the authors as representing some of their best work. I certainly can't argue with that. Here's the line-up:

"Archie's Been Framed", Dave Zeltserman
"Night Nurse", Harry Shannon
"Solomon & Lord Drop Anchor", Paul Levine
"Number 19", Naomi Hirahara
"Sweet Dreams", Vicki Hendricks
"House Rules", Libby Fischer Hellmann
"Angie", Ed Gorman
"Knife Fight", Joel Goldman
"Jack Webb's Star", Lee Goldberg
"Restraint", Stephen Gallagher
"Top of the World", Bill Crider
"A Matter of Principal", Max Allan Collins

I'd read some of these stories before, but I read them again and still loved them, and the ones I hadn't read were equally excellent and entertaining. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be Bill Crider's "Top of the World", which is a much darker and nastier yarn than most of the work for which Bill is known. But all the stories are really, really good, and you can't go wrong with any of them.

And you also can't go wrong with the price, which, as I write this, is zip, nada, nothing. Free, in other words. I highly recommend that you grab this one if you don't have it already. It's an absolutely top-notch anthology.
