Revenge has long been a staple in suspense fiction and film, engaging readers and moviegoers alike. Now for the first time ever is a collection of master storytellers spinning tales featuring this, one of the most violent, compelling aspects of intrigue. These respected 12 authors include names as diverse as Mary Higgins Clark, Joyce Carol Oates, Shel Silverstein, Peter Straub, Phillip Margolin and Lawrence Block, each bringing their own unique treatment to a subject as old as the act of murder itself. And with veteran mystery editor and publisher Otto Penzler at the helm, the ride promises to be by turns wry, gritty, romantic, untraditional -- and always entertaining.

This new and original collection of stories truly lived up to the fantastic reputation earned by Penzler's last anthology, Murder for Love, which won an Edgar Award for best Mystery Short: Story (Michael Malone) and received wonderful acclaim (see attached list).
