Women on the Case by Sara Paretsky

Book Description

Sara Paretsky, creator of V.I. Warshawski, has brought together a brilliant and diverse collection of short stories which proves the old adage that a woman's work is never done. From private eye purgatory to tourist's paradise, from the mean streets of despair to gilded hell in consumer heaven, the cream of contemporary women crime writers presents stories of crime and punishment on a global scale. Helga Anderle ~ Linda Barnes ~ Nevada Barr ~ Amel Benaboura ~ Pieke Biermann ~ Eleanor Taylor Bland ~ P.M. Carlson ~ Liza Cody ~ Amanda Cross ~ Doroty Salisbury Davis ~ Susan Dunlop ~ Antonia Fraser ~ Frances Fyfield ~ Susan Geason ~ Elizabeth George ~ Linda Grant ~ Dicey Scroggins Jackson ~ Myriam Laurini ~ Lia Matera ~ Marcia Muller ~ Irina Muravyova ~ Sara Paretsky ~ Nancy Pickard ~ Ruth Rendell ~ Andrea Smith ~ Barbara Wilson

US Kirkus Review » This sequel to A Woman's Eye (1991) packs 26 all-new or newly translated stories, linked for the most part not only by their female authors and sleuths, but for their focus on issues of special concern to women (most of them would be unrecognizable with men in the leading roles). Despite repeating nine authors from her earlier anthology, Paretsky has cast her net even wider this time, going to Germany (Pieke Biermann), Austria (Helga Anderle), Russia (Irina Muravieva), Algeria (Amel Benaboura), Argentina (Myriam Laurini), and Australia (Susan Geason), and publishing first stories by Andrea Smith (an uppity black cop) and Dicey Scroggins Jackson (a disappearance from a women's shelter). With the notable exception of Sue Grafton, virtually all the big names in the field are represented - Nancy Pickard, Liza Cody, Ruth Rendell, Elizabeth George, Linda Barnes, Susan Dunlap, Marcia Muller, Lia Matera - but none of the entries outclasses the editor's own deft tale of a murdered mystery writer who seems like a cross between Camille Paglia and Sara Paretsky. Most notable as a barometer of the impressive verve and variety of contemporary women's mystery writing. (Kirkus Reviews)
