Nice Mention for "Such A Lucky, Pretty Girl"
Pubisher's Weekly
Publisher's Weekly

Mystery Writers of America presents a high-quality anthology of 19 original stories that explore a wide range of police experiences, from newcomer Polly Nelson's superb tale set in 1864 Kansas, Burying Mr. Henry, to editor Connelly's powerful and grim Harry Bosch investigation into a young disabled boy's death, Father's Day. The sordid mean streets, depicted in Persia Walker's Such a Lucky, Pretty Girl, are nicely balanced with the lighter touches of Jon Breen's Serial Killer, a darkly comic tale in which two police detectives recount one of their cases to a community college writing class. TV writer Paul Guyot contributes one of the volume's strongest selections, What a Wonderful World, about a cop's obsessive search for the killer of a hot dog vendor. This is one of those rare themed anthologies that can be enjoyed at one sitting. (Apr.)
