Too often our crime-solving heroes do just that – solve crimes. But what about the ones who get away – the grifters who con and don't get caught, the criminals who play cat-and-mouse games with the law only to disappear into the unknown? What goes through their minds, or the minds of their victims and pursuers? What legends do they leave behind, both inspirational and terrifying?
Featuring an amazing mix of crime masters and new voices in the genre, this anthology cannot be missed...
**** LAWRENCE BLOCK IS EXCLUSIVE TO THE PRINT EDITION AND WILL NOT FEATURE IN THE DIGITAL VERSION ****
American crime writer Lawrence Block was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and his work just so happens to be in this anthology - it's an honour to present the darker side of Mr Block.
UK author Chris Simms, deep into his DI Jon Spicer series, was listed as one of Waterstone's '25 Authors of the Future'. His short story, 'Gaffed', begins the anthology.
And let's not forget about the Australians, including author Will Elliott, hard at work on the Pendulum Trilogy after receiving a trunkful of awards for The Pilo Family Circus. Thankfully, he had time to contribute to The One That Got Away. It's our crime story with a horror edge.
