Elizabeth George reaches into English history in "I, Richard," as an academic obsessed by a priceless artifact plots a deadly course of seduction-only to discover that fate is the most quixotic mistress of all. But "Barking at Butterflies" is a story straight out of today's headlines: Ed McBain's tale of a man who goes barking mad when a yappy Maltese takes over his life. As in his two previous volumes of original stories (Murder for Revenge and Murder for Love), Penzler knows how to pick a wide and deep variety of writers and then coax them into producing their best work.

Ann Perry, Elizabeth George, Elmore Leonard and Dennis Lehane. Running Out of Dog by Dennis Lehane. This thing with Blue and the dogs and Elgin Bern happened a while back, a few years after some of our boys-like Elgin Bern and Cal Sears-came back from Vietnam, and a lot of others-like Eddie Vorey and Carl Joe Carol, the Stewart cousins-didn't. We don't know how it worked in other towns, but that war put something secret in our boys who returned.

This review is for the second volume of the audiocassette edition. Volume 2 contains seven stories by a constellation of literary luminaries: Elmore Leonard, Eric Van Lustbader, Michael Malone, Ed McBaine, Joyce Carol Oates, Anne Perry, and Shel Silverstein.
"Sparks" details the smoldering particulars of an insurance investigator's inquiry into the burning of a beautiful woman's house. Three stars.
"Slow Burn" is a police procedural weighted down by the protagonist's Freudian baggage. It gives a disturbing look at child molestation, sexual exploitation, mental illness, and revenge. Two stars.
"Invitation to the Ball" presents a mystery in three parts. The protagonist, obsessed with a painting of a beautiful lady, seeks to determine whether she murdered her husband almost a century ago. He meets and woos a descendant of the lady. For all his interest in the ancestor, he shows remarkably little interest in the mystery presented by the descendant. The third mystery is a modern murder that ties in neatly with the other two. Five stars.
"Barking at Butterflies" tells the story of a man with a rival for his wife's affection. He fantasizes about taking murderous action towards the rival. Then . . . . Four stars.
"Heroes" began as a war story but resolved itself into quite a nice little mystery; not so much a who-done-it as a what-did-he-do. A good exploration of perception and reality as it relates to heroism. Five stars.
In "The Guilty Party," an eccentric judge applies the wisdom of Solomon to cases which come before him. Four stars.

Good selection of authors from this period to sample for further readings. Anne Perry is back in the WW1 trenches with a gritty tale of ugly times.

I could not put this book down. Every story was good. The stories emphasize original twists on traditional obsession themes. Some are humorous. Others are shocking. Others are low-key and subservise. This is a well-written and intelligent collection.

For fans of good mystery writing, this book is a welcome addition to your library. There are a few stories in it that did not pull me in as much as others, but it still was an enjoyable read. With 15 stories of murder, intrigue, obsession and betrayal by various authors, this book should appeal to everyone who likes a good mystery.
