Anthologies and Short Stories
A Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles Anthology
Available April 17th
The sun-kissed city of high hopes and second chances, where everyone seems to be from somewhere else. A siren’s call to dreamers, misfits, mystics and freaks, lost souls and purveyors of sin. They roll in on their last tank of gas, their suitcases bulging with secrets of pasts better forgotten. They stay for a few days, a month, a year, a lifetime. The determined and the desperate, careening and colliding toward trouble, and their last resort.
LAst Resort, a Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles anthology, includes stories by Avril Adams, Paula Bernstein, Lynne Bronstein, Stephen Buehler, Sarah M. Chen, Anne David, Gay Degani, L.H. Dillman, Wrona Gall, Cyndra Gernet, Georgia Jeffries, Melinda Loomis, GB Pool, Laurie Stevens, Wendall Thomas, and Mae Woods.
Edited by Matt Coyle, Mary Marks, and Patricia Smiley, with a special thank you to Michael Connelly for the introduction.

Two of the Deadliest
Edited by Elizabeth George
"Also fascinating is Patricia Smiley's 'The Offer' in which a woman from the Pacific Northwest comes to Los Angeles to compete for a job that seems perfect until she learns too late the real price of relocation...a superb look at lust and greed as seen through the eyes of the Outstanding Women of Mystery."
There are seven deadly sins, and in this superb anthology, edited by Elizabeth George, some of the most able and original purveyors of crime fiction explore Two of the Deadliest. These “New Tales of Lust, Greed, and Murder from Outstanding Women of Mystery” feature sterling stories from Laura Lippman, Susan Wiggs, Carolyn Hart, Nancy Pickard, and George herself, as well as from other masters and exciting, tremendously talented newcomers.
