In her introduction, guest editor Laura Lippman notes that the mystery short story writer's task is an exacting one - the result must be solid and satisfying, but also provide "the requisite twists and answers" and a "resolution that must never be too on-the-nose." Showcasing writers who have honed this nuanced skill set, The Best American Mystery Stories 2014 offers tightly wound whodunits, puzzling perspectives, and disturbing denouements. There's a bank-robbing former Marine, a young mother under suspicion after her child goes missing, a ruthless colonial timber baron, a high school principal with a past, and a host of other memorable characters in this collection "filled with mayhem and murder and darkness."
