Book summary

A riveting new anthology seriesa years worth of the most powerful, the most startling, the most astute and smartest, in short, the best crime journalism.

Included in this first volume are Mark Singers The Chicken Warriors from The New Yorker: an up-close look at the tawdry, wildly popular, illegal world of cock-fighting; E. Jean Carrols The Cheerleaders from Spin: the story of how an idyllic townthe model for Bedford Falls in Its a Wonderful Lifewas ravaged by murders, rapes, and suicides; and David McClinticks Fatal Bondage from Vanity Fair: the tale of a grifter with an attraction to sado-masochistic sex and serial killing. Intriguing, entertaining, compelling reading, The Best American Crime Writing is sure to become a much-anticipated annual. [via]
