Introduced and edited by Lee Child - available in harcover
As I've mentioned before, I'm not really a fan of short stories but I always buy the ones written by mystery writers so I can find authors whose books I haven't read.
FIRST THRILLS is a collection of 25 short thriller or mystery stories written by different authors and introduced and edited by Lee Child. Some of the stories are really good; i.e., THE THIEF by Gregg Hurwitz, THE BODYGUARD by Lee Child and THE GATO CONUNDRUM by John Lescroart to name a few. Some are okay and others were pretty mediocre, which is typical of this type of compiled work.
Since this volume had more good than bad stories, I think you'd enjoy FIRST THRILLS.
