If you love to be skewered by rapier wit or prefer punch lines with your police procedurals, this delightful collection of screwball mystery stories will get you where you giggle. Fifteen of today's best writers gang up to make crime a laughing matter with gallows humor, lighthearted larceny, and murder most merry.

Joan Hess, in "The Cremains of the Day," shows how burned up a soon-to-be-ex-wife can get when her puddy cat is stolen. Carolyn Hart's "Accidents Happen" makes what goes around come around for a playboy husband planning to kill his career-track wife. Retirees Joe and Dottie Loudermilk are steering their Airstream trailer home through Amarillo in Gar Anthony Haywood's "A Mother Always Knows" when they run into trouble--a nervous robber with a gun. Fifteen mystery stories in all investigate the lighter side of murder and mayhem.
