Scarlet Stiletto: the Second Cut
edited by Phyllis King
The Second Cut features 23 crime and mystery stories culled from all years of the Scarlet Stiletto Awards presented annually by Sisters in Crime Australia.
This sequel to the First Cut, includes the First Prize winners from 2007 to 2010, and a selection of category-winning tales from the 17-year history of the awards, which began in 1993.
The stories are daring, thrilling, funny and deadly serious; they're darkly comic, violent and nasty or poignant and poetic.
The Second Cut is a superb collection of page-turning mysteries in which fabulous female protagonists solve – and sometimes perpetrate – all kinds of crimes.
Featuring cops, killers, PIs, crooks and amateur sleuths, these award-winning stories will have you on the edge of your seat, will chill your blood and sometimes make you laugh out loud.
They are all wildly entertaining and showcase the talent of women crime writers in Australia.
Scarlet Stiletto: the Second Cut is available in ePub and Kindle (aka mobi) versions, and in paperback.
