Publisher's Summary

A collection of 23 indelible stories - all never before published - from today's top female crime writers and some talented newcomers, selected by the New York Times best-selling authorThe seven deadly sins have been the roots of crime throughout human history. In Two of the Deadliest, Elizabeth George has gathered nearly two dozen tales that probe the dark heart of crime in the name of a pair of particularly wicked transgressions: lust and greed. A young woman mistaken for someone else falls neatly into what appears to be the perfect business opportunity, only to learn that such luxury comes with a price. A mother is driven to depths she never imagined by her less-than-grateful son. And two lovers intent on profiting from an unexpected inheritance discover that the most valuable item is not at all what they thought it was. In addition to stars including Laura Lippman, Susan Wiggs, Marcia Muller, Carolyn Hart, Nancy Pickard, and Elizabeth George herself, the collection also features new writers from a broad range of backgrounds - journalists, educators, and criminal experts. Together they explore the dark depths women and men will sink to for passion, wealth, and power. Thrilling and unpredictable, these stories of murder and mayhem are guaranteed to shock and entertain.

Just Plain Boring

Some of these stories end with no understandable conclusion- some are just riduculous. Elizabeth George can write the most wonderful stories herself, but choosing these for this collection wasn't her best move. None of them were compelling enough to really keep my interest.

Not mysteries

These short stories are not mysteries. They are "modern" type short stories where nothing happens. One of the joys of the mystery is the resolution!
