For many of us, a good, heart-pounding mystery is the perfect escape from real-world confusion and chaos. But what about the writers who create those stories of suspense and intrigue? In this anthology, 20 mystery writers share first-person tales of true mysteries they've encountered at home and in the world. Caroline Leavitt recounts a time when she lost her voice and doctors couldn't find a cure, Martin Limón travels back to his military stint in Korea to grapple with the crimes of war, and Anne Perry ponders the magical powers of stories conjured from the imagination. Other contributors include Jeffery Deaver, Connie May Fowler, Rhys Bowen, Jacqueline Winspear, Charles Todd, and William Kent Krueger.
