In Crime Wave 2: Women of a Certain Age
In Crime Wave 2, the anthology of mystery stories from Sisters in Crime–Canada West, a short story with new characters, set in the Mysterious Devices steampunk world.
“…a pitch-perfect bedside anthology.” —Loreth Anne White, bestselling author of The Patient’s Secret
This second anthology from members of the Canada West chapter of Sisters in Crime follows women of a certain age through old crimes and new. Whether they be old women or little girls, women in dirigibles or women on their death beds, women in history or the woman next door, we know them through their experiences and ours.
From real estate agents to house cleaners, school girls to exterminators, you will find a delicious array of women, some with outrage in their hearts—and some with revenge—but all of them dealing with crime in new and imaginative ways.
In Shelley Adina’s “The Air Affair,” Georgia Brunel, Lady Langford, boards the transcontinental airship Juno with her late husband’s aunt, Millicent Brunel. They are looking forward to nothing more dangerous than a painting holiday in the clockwork city of Venice, but trouble soon finds them in the person of Millie’s nemesis from her long-ago schooldays. Old grudges have not been forgotten. Old hurts have not healed. Will an old feud finally be resolved… in murder?
The sixteen short stories in Crime Wave 2: Women of a Certain Age range from lighthearted to heartbreaking, and from romantic to treacherous.
Come. Catch the Crime Wave.
