more mysterious than a locked box. Whether it’s a literal strongbox, an empty
coffin, the inner workings of a scientist’s mind, or an underground prison
cell, there are those who will use any means necessary to unlock the secrets of
The Mystery Box.
With this anthology, bestselling author Brad Meltzer
introduces twenty-one original stories from today’s most prominent mystery
writers. In Laura Lippman’s “Waco 1982,” a young reporter stuck with a
seemingly mundane assignment on lost-and-found boxes unwittingly discovers a
dark crime. In Joseph Finder’s “Heirloom,” a scheming neighbor frightens the
new couple on the block with an unnerving tale of buried treasure. In R. L.
Stine’s “High Stakes,” a man on his honeymoon gets drawn into a bizarre bet
involving a coffin, a bet he may pay for with his life.
From the foothills of Mount Fuji to Georgia’s Okefenokee
Swamp, from a physics laboratory in wartime Leipzig to an unusual fitness club
in Boca Raton, these sometimes terrifying, sometimes funny, and always
suspenseful tales will keep you riveted.
