Selected by Jeffrey Deaver and Raymond Benson, this is a collection of mystery/thriller short stories from some of today's top writers. Nuclear brinksmanship, psychological warfare, spies, double agents, femmes fatales, and dead drops . . . The Cold War a terrifying time when nuclear war between the world's two superpowers was an everpresent threat, an alltooreal possibility that could be set off at the touch of a button provides a chilling backdrop to this collection of allnew short stories from today's most celebrated mystery writers. Bestselling authors Jeffery Deaver and Raymond Benson the only American writers to be commissioned to pen official James Bond novels have joined forces to bring us twenty masterful tales of paranoia, espionage, and psychological drama. In Joseph Finder's ''Police Report,'' the seemingly cutanddried case of a lunatic murderer in rural Massachusetts may have roots in Sovietcontrolled Armenia. In ''Miss Bianca'' by Sara Paretsky, a young girl befriends a mouse in a biological warfare laboratory and finds herself unwittingly caught in an espionage drama. And Deaver's own ''Comrade 35'' offers a unique spin on the assassination of John F. Kennedywith a signature twist.
