This collection of 24 short stories is written by different authors to benefit the owners of Once Upon A Crime, a mystery book store located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This book contains stories written by several award winning authors. I enjoyed the variety of mysteries which ranged from 5-25 pages in length. One of my favorite stories, Puck, is about a retired grifter couple living in the suburbs. Another story, Dumb Luck, involves husband and wife traveling carnies and Buddy their diving mule. Many of the stories are humorous and have a twist to their ending. A great feature of this book are the biographies of each author. I now have several new authors to read.
