Forge Books is proud to present an amazing collection of novellas, compiled by New York Times bestselling author Ed McBain. Transgressions is a quintessential classic of never-before-published tales from today's very best novelists. Faeturing: "Walking Around Money" by Donald E. Westlake: The master of the comic mystery is back with an all-new novella featuring hapless crook John Dortmunder, who gets involved in a crime that supposedly no one will ever know happened. Naturally, when something it too good to be true, it usually is, and Dortmunder is going to get to the bottom of this caper before he's left holding the bag. "Hostages" by Anne Perry: The bestselling historical mystery author has written a tale of beautiful yet still savage Ireland today. In their eternal struggle for freedom, there is about to be a changing of the guard in the Irish Republican Army. Yet for some, old habits-and honor-still die hard, even at gunpoint. "The Corn Maiden" by Joyce Carol Oates: When a fourteen-year-old girl is abducted in a small New York town, the crime starts a spiral of destruction and despair as only this master of psychological suspense could write it. "Archibald Lawless, Anarchist at Large: Walking the Line" by Walter Mosley: Felix Orlean is a New York City journalism student who needs a job to cover his rent. An ad in the paper leads him to Archibald Lawless, and a descent into a shadow world where no one and nothing is as it first seems. "The Resurrection Man" by Sharyn McCrumb": During America's first century, doctors used any means necessary to advance their craft-including dissecting corpses. Sharyn McCrumb brings the South of the 1850s to life in this story of a man who is assigned to dig up bodies to help those that are still alive. "Merely Hate" by Ed McBain: When a string of Muslim cabdrivers are killed, and the evidence points to another ethnic group, the detectives of the 87th Precinct must hunt down a killer before the city explodes in violence. "The Things They Left Behind" by Stephen King: In the wake of the worst disaster on American soil, one man is coming to terms with the aftermath of the Twin Towers-when he begins finding the things they left behind. "The Ransome Women" by John Farris: A young and beautiful starving artist is looking to catch a break when her idol, the reclusive portraitist John Ransome offers her a lucrative year-long modeling contract. But how long will her excitement last when she discovers the fate shared by all Ransome's past subjects? "Forever" by Jeffery Deaver: Talbot Simms is an unusual cop-he's a statistician with the Westbrook County Sheriff Department. When two wealthy couples in the county commit suicide one right after the other, he thinks that it isn't suicide-it's murder, and he's going to find how who was behind it, and how the did it. "Keller's Adjustment" by Lawrence Block: Everyone's favorite hit man is back in MWA Grand Master Lawrence Block's novella, where the philosophical Keller deals out philosophy and murder on a meandering road trip from one end of the America to the other.… (mer)

My favourite novella was entitled "Archibald Lawless: Anarchist at Large." When I was fifteen I read a lot about anarchy, both in its theoretical/political form and in the exaggerated strawman-anarchy form. From what I remember of this novella, it leans more towards the former than the latter in its representation of anarchy, which I quite respected. ( )

Longer than short stories, each of these works succeeds in immersing the reader into the mystery and characters of unrelated works. ( )

Transgressions contains 10 novellas by well-known and loved authors. My favorite stories belonged to Stephen King dealing with things left behind in a man's care by co-workers who died on 9-11; Joyce Carol Oates writes about hateful school girls; Anne Perry takes us to Ireland and drops us in a vignette about their well-known political/religious conflict; The Ransome Women by John Farris is a story about an artist who engages models--one a year-- and what happens to those models once they're done; and Sharyn McCrumb writes about body snatching.

The rest of the contributors did a good job, but these are the stories that really stood out for me. I always love to get a sampling of authors I've never read, and I think this is a good book to introduce these authors and their style of writing to those who may not normally pick up one of their books. Of course, each author will bring his fan-base to this particular book too, and I don't think they'll be disappointed. ( )
