Description

Laws change from culture to culture, decade to decade. Strange laws make criminals of ordinary citizens. Like the Massachusetts woman whose brother asks her for help, slave hunters at his heels. Or the Chinese immigrant who finds himself in the middle of a crooked game of Fan Tan. Or the Native American detective searching New York's Stonewall Bar for a ratfink on the night of a world-changing riot. These stories and more prove that once again, Fiction River's crime volumes have, in the words of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, "high quality throughout."

"Meeting the exceptional quality of previous anthologies, this collection contains excellent past crimes short stories."
-- Futures Mystery Anthology Magazine

"Rusch's strong anthology contains a dozen stories of 'crimes that aren't crimes any longer,' as she states in her introduction, stories that move from as far back as ancient Egypt to as recently as the 1970s... Readers will find many impressive voices, both familiar and new.
-- Publishers Weekly
