Dana Stabenow (author of the Kate Shugak & Liam Campbell Alaskan Mystery Series) gathered a bunch of writers for a Left Coast Crime Convention in February, 2001 from whence sprang this only-in-paperback-and-understandably-so book. What was the generally environmentally conscious Stabenow thinking? Unlike Mary Higgins Clark presents The Plot Thickens, proceeds from which fight illiteracy in America, there is no explanation for this book. Some of these stories are pretty good: those from Sue Henry, Fr. Brad Reynolds, James Sarafin and, of course, Stabenow herself. Most of the rest are a pity to the poor trees sacrificed to print them. At best, it is "flight fodder" for a long plane trip. Reviewed by TundraVision.
