A Mysterious Anthology...

This anthology combines the talents of 18 experienced writers whose stories have made USA Today Bestsellers lists and Amazon Top Ten rankings and who have won or been nominated for national awards such as the Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, and Silver Falchion. Previously published works from authors range from novels and short stories to fiction and non-fiction magazine credits. They actively promote their works by presenting writing workshops or panels at book and writing conferences and mystery-related events. Several authors contribute to blogs, serve on mystery-writer organization boards, and guest appear on radio shows.

“A disgruntled office worker uses wine as a weapon, a crime is confirmed
during a slightly tipsy séance, dueling amateur sleuths make frequent
stops at the free bar while tracking down a killer—these are only a few
of the lively, suspenseful tales told in 50 Shades of Cabernet. Wine
lovers and mystery fans alike are sure to enjoy this intoxicating and
full-bodied (in more ways than one) blend of stories.”
—B.K. STEVENS, Derringer winner; Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity nominee
