ANTHONY AWARD FINALIST FOR BEST ANTHOLOGY



Including NYT bestselling author Michael Connelly’s story “Avalon,” soon to be adapted for television by David E. Kelley.  



“The very best of what crime fiction should deliver.” -New York Journal of Books



The latest Mystery Writers of America story collection, featuring surprising, page-turning twists on the genre from some of the top bestsellers and award winners in crime fiction



It’s been said that all great literature boils down to one of two stories–a man takes a journey, or a stranger comes to town. While mystery writers have been successfully using both approaches for generations, there’s something undeniably alluring in the nature of a stranger: the uninvited guest, the unacquainted neighbor, the fish out of water.



No matter how or where they appear, strangers are walking mysteries, complete unknowns in once-familiar territories who disrupt our lives with unease and wonder. In the newest collection of stories by the Mystery Writers of America, each author weaves a fresh tale surrounding the eerie feeling that comes when a stranger enters our midst, featuring stories by prolific mystery writers such as Michael Connelly, Dean Koontz and Joe Hill.
