In "The Best of Sisters In Crime," by Marilyn Wallace, we have a sampling of some of the very best mysteries written by women. Included are such terrific authors as Mary Higgins Clark, Elizabeth George, Carolyn Hart and Joyce Carol Oates, along with many others. These stories range from the terrifying to the humorous.
Twenty-two reprints of stories on crime by women. They range from Marcia Muller's All the Lonely People, in which a woman goes to work for an escort service to catch a criminal, to Joyce Carol Oates' Extenuating Circumstances, the confession of a murderess.
The description of this book lists some authors who are not actually in the book, but this is a good collection of some of the best female mystery writers at work in the 1990s. The mix offers something for everyone: PI, humor, suspense, historical, police procedural, and just plain dark. I am not a big fan of the latter but I liked most of the stories in this book. Worth a look for mystery fans. I rated this a 3 because none of the stories were real standouts for me.

That woman, two tables away-what was it about her? She had an oval face, a not-bad straight brown bob; her green eyes never even looked up from the book she was reading until her salad arrived. When the woman smiled at the waitress, a pang of excitement lapped at Charlotte’s tummy, a little flicker she didn’t quite understand. Charlotte brought the spoon to her mouth.
It is a varied collection, with one story each from 21 authors. Most people will like some better than others, but it provides an introduction to the authors, and I have sometimes found authors this way and followed up by purchasing their novels.
