Festival_of_Crime_CoverFESTIVAL OF CRIME ANTHOLOGY (not part of the No Ordinary Women mystery series)

“. . . Among the better stories is Barbara Merritt Deese’s “Release,” set at a mass release of raptors rehabilitated in captivity, during which an abused woman finds her own release. ~ Publisher’s Weekly

“Most of the tales in this surprisingly diverse collection are about bad girls–cool, cunning, courageous, caring, sentimental, sly, savage, sexy, wicked and eye-poppingly bad girls. Story after story is a revelation, filled with devious characters, perfect twists, and writing that’s sure to rough you up a little.” ~ Edgar Award winner, David Housewright
