Sixteen of America's favorite author-anglers spin tales of mystery and fishing in this collection. From the tragic to the comic, with many stops in between, these stories reflect the authors' passions for both making stories and catching fish. Michael Connelly, Ridley Pearson, John Lescroart, Don Winslow, Melodie Johnson Howe, Victoria Houston, and others all share a mysterious affection for things piscatorial when not busy writing best-selling books. This collection of all-original short stories will entertain even the most discriminating mystery reader.
This collection includes the following stories: "River Tears" by Ridley Pearson, "Cutthroat" by Mark T. Sullivan, "Blue on Black" by Michael Connelly, "Unsnaggable" by John Lescroart, "Darmstadt" by Andrew Winer, "Cherchez La Femme" by Dana Stabenow, "Sandy Brook" by Don Winslow, "The Nymph" by Melodie Johnson Howe, "Tight Lines" by James W. Hall, "Every Day Is a Good Day on the River" by C. J. Box, "Death by Honey Hole" by Victoria Houston, "The Blood-Dimmed Tide," by Will Beall, "Dead Drift" by Spring Warren, "Granite Hat" by Brian M. Wiprud, "Mr. Brody's Trout" by William G. Tapply, and "Luck" by T. Jefferson Parker.
This was so disappointing! I bought this book for vacation listening, including a 5-hour drive, because many of my favorite authors contributed. Ridley Pearson's start-off story was mediocre and the next six went steadily downhill. The last few stories we listened to were just painful to get through, thanks in no small part to the narrators' over-the-top reading. We "threw in the earphones."
