Beschreibung

Prepare to meet the most seductively female and the most shockingly fatal of femmes fatales, brought to you by 17 of today's finest authors of mystery and suspense fiction. Award-winning editor Otto Penzler presents a collection of short and sizzling masterpieces of kisses and kiss-offs, gams and gats, published for the first time anywhere. In "Third Party", Jay McInerney takes you on a wild ride through the Paris night with a party girl built for speed and sin; "Rendezvous", Nelson DeMille's first short story in 25 years, plunges you into a Vietnam jungle where the bloodiest scourge of this man's army is no man at all; back in the U.S.A. of "Louly and Pretty Boy", Elmore Leonard introduces a Depression-era teenage gun moll who loves Pretty Boy Floyd more than she likes knocking off filling stations; and Michael Connelly's colorful and ironic "Cielo Azul" shows how a nameless woman left dead on a Los Angeles hillside can be the most lethal prey of all. These and a bevy of other very bad girls cast their criminal spells through the powerful voices of Lorenzo Carcaterra, Joyce Carol Oates, John Connolly, Thomas H. Cook, Jeffery Deaver, J. A. Jance, Andrew Klavan, Laura Lippman, Ed McBain, Walter Mosley, Anne Perry, Ian Rankin, and S. J. Rozan in stories as irresistible as the antiheroines that blaze through their pages.

Ganz okay

Für alle, die gerne kurze Erzählungen hören, sind die einzelnen Storys ganz in Ordnung, einige halt mehr, andere weniger. ich höre Audio-Books meist im Auto und mit diesen Erzählungen ging es mir so, dass ich oft zwei, drei Tage nachdem ich zuletzt gehört hatte, den Faden verloren hatte und mich nicht mehr erinnern konnte, um wen und was es eigentlich letztens ging....
