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.

    " Some of the short stories I really liked, and some I skipped over (because they were offensive). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kae Cheatham | 4/24/2013

    " Theme of seductive and devious females was interesting. Some of the stories were forced to the theme--as if written especially for this volume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 amanda | 12/24/2012

    " Nice short story collection. Every central character is a murderous woman, but some stores have plot twists so you end up suprised whodunit. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Constance | 9/26/2010

    " Boring, misogynistic dreck. The only thing dangerous about the women in these stories was the complete lack of insight and interest with which they were created. "

    " This is a collection of 17 short stories with a lot of well-known authors.Unfortunately none of the stories really stood out for me, either in a good or bad way.They weren't a waste of time but they probably won't stay in my memory for long either. "
