About the Book

“This brilliant anthology of short stories by some of the most outstanding women now writing mysteries and crime fiction...is a truly glorious collection” — Globe and Mail

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George has gathered nearly two dozen chilling, boldly original stories, each published for the very first time in this outstanding collection. In addition to tales from some of today's top stars—including Laura Lippman, Susan Wiggs, Marcia Muller, Carolyn Hart, Nancy Pickard, and Elizabeth George herself—Two of the Deadliest showcases work from an impressive array of exceptional newcomers, as together they explore the dark depths women and men will sink to when driven by passion, avarice, and a lethal hunger for power.
