Like good fiction, cars take us into a different world: from the tony enclaves of upper crust society to the lowliest barrio; from muscle car-driving con men to hardscrabble kids on the road during the Great Depression; from a psychotic traveling salesman to a Mexican drug lord who drives a tricked-out VW Bus. Showing plenty of variety, this tribute to the national obsession includes short works of crime fiction by Michael Connelly, C.J. Box, George Pelecanos, Diana Gabaldon, Ben H. Winters, James Sallis, Ace Atkins, Luis Alberto Urrea, Sara Gran, and Joe Lansdale.
