This delightful husband-and-wife collaboration features three stories by two-time Shamus award-winner Max Allan Collins, four stories by acclaimed short-story writer Barbara Collins, and two stories that the couple co-wrote.

Among the contributions from Max Allan Collins--whose credits include novels, nonfiction, film criticism, songwriting, and four independent films--is "Catgate," in which a womanizing senator tries to replace his dead mistress with a lookalike, and "Inconvenience Store," in which a late-night craving drives a pregnant private eye out to a convenience store and into a hostage situation.  Max's movie, Real Time: Siege at Lucas Street Market is based on this short story.

Barbara Collins' work has been included in the first three volumes of The Year's 25 Finest Crime and Mystery Stories. Her pieces include "Seeing Red," where PMS meets road rage and leads to tragedy.

And the talented duo conspired on "Eddie Haskell in a Short Skirt," the story of a father-daughter private eye team who hire an office manager and become the suckers in a scam.
