Summary:

"I'll confess right here that crafting a good short story is much harder than writing a full-length novel, writes Edgar Award-winning author C.J. Box in his introduction. "It's the difference between stringing a series of dissimilar pearls on a string and calling it a necklace and being he oyster who creates a single perfect pearl." In THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES 2020, travel to a small-town Wyoming bank robbery and a Wichita Falls asylum. Experience everything from a captivating political hit job to a criminal case decided by AI jurors. The tales here are, in Box's words, "twenty perfect pearls" delivering startling twists, uncanny thrills, and plenty of punch. -- from back cover.
