The annual that has included the likes of Joyce Carol Oates and Max Allan Collins is back with another array of traditional mysteries and tales of crime and suspense from its usual roster of luminaries. Besides presenting twenty of the year's finest crime and mystery stories, from Sharan Newman and James W. Hall to Anne Perry and Jeffery Deaver, The Deadly Bride is also the only annual to feature a roundup of the year in mystery. This invaluable overview includes everything the true fan needs to know about the year in crime and mystery, from a comprehensive list of award-winners and essays on the state of the art to obituaries and an annotated bibiliography of the year's releases.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This collection lives up to its billing as the year's finest crime and mystery stories (22 of them, to be exact). With stories ranging from the macabre to the merrily murderous, there's something here to please all fans of mystery short fiction. There are no weak links here, but Jefferey Deaver's Born Bad, which features a right-angle twist near the end, stands out as particularly memorable, and Sharan Newman's Deadly Bride, which lends the book its title, is a snappy historical mystery that reminds us what that subgenre is all about. --David Pitt Copyright 2006 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Covering both 2005 and 2006, the latest "finest" anthology from Gorman and Greenberg (after 2005's The Adventure of the Missing Detective) gathers 22 largely mainstream crime and mystery stories. In addition, Jon Breen presents a useful roundup of significant publications and awards; Edward D. Hoch's necrology reminds us of the loss of many fine authors in the past two years; and Sarah Weinman continues to track developments in online publishing. Highlights include Wendy Hornsby's "Dust Up," about a bike-riding birdwatcher who takes on a car full of robbers; Simon Brett's "Cain Was Innocent," a humorous take on man's first murder; and Jeremiah Healy's "A Matter of Honor," in which John Francis Cuddy gets a lesson from a Finnish beauty. Other notable contributions to this entertaining compendium come from James W. Hall, J.A. Jance, Anne Perry and Jeffery Deaver. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
