Summary, etc.: From New York Times best-selling author Faye Kellerman comes an extraordinary anthology of her best short writing. Here the backdrop of contemporary California becomes fertile ground for Kellerman's riveting tales of murder, mystery, and family ties most sinister and deadly. Among the first-rate short mysteries in this collection: the brand new "Garden of Eden" and "Open House" feature the famous sleuthing duo Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus; "Bull's-Eye" introduced Cindy Decker to the crime fiction world; and "Mr. Barton's Head Case" appears here for the very first time in English. In addition, two rare personal essays allow listeners glimpses into Kellerman's private life, revealing her true grit in "Small Miracles" and childhood memories of working in her father's deli in the exquisite "Summer of My Womanhood."Compiled at last in one volume, the pieces in this book feature new introductions by the author and contribute to a unique, compelling portrait of one of America's top masters of suspense. A must-have collection for all mystery fans, The Garden of Eden and Other Criminal Delights showcases how ordinary everyday experiences can be the genesis of extraordinary tales that unveil the darkest sins and secrets of the human heart.
