“Strangers in a Pub” by Martin Edwards has been shortlisted for the 2019 CWA Short Story Dagger
“Edwards and Muller have assembled top-notch talent in this entertaining anthology of 20 original short stories… High-quality entries from the likes of Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, and Ian Rankin, as well as from lesser-known authors such as Bill Beverly, elevate this above similar volumes.”—Publishers Weekly
