MWA Presents: Classics – A Hot and Sultry Night for Crime

 

 

September 18, 2017 New York, NY – Mystery Writers of America is proud to announce the launch of its new anthology program of MWA Presents: Classics with a new e-book edition of A Hot and Sultry Night for Crime, a 2003 collection of stories written by top mystery writers and edited by Jeffery Deaver.

Temperatures rise and tempers flare in twenty classic short stories by the mystery world’s finest authors, set in hot climates where jealousy, greed, and murderous rage reach the boiling point.

Mystery Writers of America Presents is the force behind almost 70 MWA anthologies, published more or less annually since 1946.  MWA Presents: Classics is a chance to bring some of these older, classic collections back into print for a new audience – beginning with that of our current President, Jeffery Deaver.

This volume contains the following award-winning or nominated stories: “Lady on Ice” by Loren D. Estleman, winner of the 2003 Shamus Award for Best Short Story; “Green Heat” by Angela Zeman, selected for The Best American Mystery Short Stories 2004, edited by Nelson DeMille and Otto Penzler; “War Crimes” by G. Miki Hayden and “Child Support” by Ronnie Klaskin were both nominated for the Best Short Story Macavity Award.

Contributing authors are David Bart, Gary Brandner, Sinclair Browning, Alan Cook, Mat Coward, Jeffery Deaver, Loren D. Estleman, Robert Lee Hall, David Handler, G. Miki Hayden, Jeremiah Healy, Suzanne C. Johnson, Toni L.P. Kelner, Ronnie Klaskin, John Lutz, Tim Myers, Ana Rainwater, Marilyn Wallace, Carolyn Wheat, and Angela Zeman.

With classic tales and Deaver’s new general introduction, A Hot and Sultry Night for Crime is a great way to heat up late summer reading.

Mystery Writers of America is the premier organization for mystery writers, professionals allied to the crime writing field, aspiring crime writers, and all those

devoted to the genre.
