Summary
It{u2019}s been said that all great literature boils down to one of two stories{u2014}a man takes a journey, or a stranger comes to town. While mystery writers have been successfully using both approaches for generations, there{u2019}s something undeniably alluring in the nature of a stranger: the uninvited guest, the unacquainted neighbor, the fish out of water. No matter how or where they appear, strangers are walking mysteries, complete unknowns in once-familiar territories who disrupt our lives with unease and wonder. In the newest collection of stories by the Mystery Writers of America, each author weaves a fresh tale surrounding the eerie feeling that comes when a stranger enters our midst, featuring stories by prolific mystery writers such as Michael Connelly, Joe Hill
