The magnificent and never-before-published Connelly story alone is worth the price of admission and---combined with eighteen unexpected tales from crime's modern masters---makes this an unmissable collection.

This selection may not be what you expect
These short stories are not bad. However, even though they are from the Mystery Writers of America, they are not mysteries. These are a series of stories about the lives and personalities of police and ex-police. Some are good, some are not. Just be warned that even though one of these stories is by Michael Connelly, these are not anything like Connelly's Harry Bosch stories, or any type of mystery story at all.

If you love short stories, this is for you!
This is a great collection of short stories that feature cops as main characters.
As another reviewer mentioned, many are not traditional mysteries. Some simply explore the world from a cop's-eye view. All the stories are standalones - they don't tie into an author's existing series. If you don't already like short stories, please consider these issues before buying.
If you are a fan of the short story form, however, you've just found a big buffet of really good food. There's enough variety to keep things interesting. Some stories have intriguing twists and others just make you think.
I've listened to several short story collections lately and this one was especially good.
