Novellas from Transgressions by Jeffery Deaver and Sharyn McCrumb
“Forever” by Jeffery Deaver: Talbot Simms is an unusual cop—a statistician with the Westbrook County Sheriff Department. When two wealthy couples commit suicide one right after the other, he suspects it isn’t suicide, but murder. He must find who was behind it, and how they did it.
“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 pre-Civil War South to life in this story of a man who is assigned to dig up bodies to help those that are still alive.
ED McBAIN’s writing career has spanned almost five decades, from his first novel, The Blackboard Jungle, in 1954 to the screenplay for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds to his most recent novel, The Moment She was Gone. He is the first American ever to receive the Diamond Dagger, the British Crime Writers Association's highest award. He also holds the Mystery Writers of America's prestigious Grand Master Award. His most recent 87th Precinct novel was Money, Money, Money. Ed McBain, also known as Evan Hunter has lived in Weston,
Connecticut with his wife Dragica for the last five years.
"In McCrumb's 'The Resurrection Man,' MacDuffie does a superb, well-rounded job at recreating a nineteenth century South Carolina community of men and women with distinctive 'gullah' accents."
