S.J. Rozan, ed. - Mystery Writers of America Presents Crime Hits Home

 First Edition Hardcover

April 19, 2022 Publication Date

The newest anthology from Mystery Writers of America explores the theme of home and the crimes that endanger it, with stories by Ellen Hart, Naomi Hirahara, Walter Mosley, Sara Paretsky and more.

Everyone comes from someplace. Everyone has somewhere they feel safe. Some people have found their home and are content where they are. Others feel trapped and yearn to go somewhere else. Many are somewhere else and yearn to go back. But even in these safest of places, sometimes…crime hits home. What happens then?

In this volume, MWA brings together some of today’s biggest crime writers—and some of our most exciting new talents—to consider this question. Each writer has defined home as they see fit: a place, a group, a feeling. The crime can come from without or within. What happens when crime hits home?

Featuring stories from: Naomi Hirahara, David Bart, Sara Paretsky, Susan Breen, Gary Phillips, Neil S. Plakcy, Renee James, Connie Johnson Hambley, Gabino Iglesias, A.P. Jamison, Walter Mosley, Tori Eldridge, Ellen Hart, G. Miki Hayden, Jonathan Santlofer, Jonathan Stone, Ovidia Yu, Bonnie Hearn Hill, Steve Liskow, and S.J. Rozan.
