With their intimate settings, subdued action and likeable characters, cozy mysteries are rarely seen as anything more than light entertainment. The cozy, a subgenre of crime fiction, has been historically misunderstood and often overlooked as the subject of serious study. This anthology brings together a groundbreaking collection of essays that examine the cozy mystery from a range of critical viewpoints. The authors engage with the standard classification of a cozy, the characters who appear in its pages, the environment where the crime occurs and how these elements reveal the cozy story's complexity in surprising ways. Essays analyze cozy mysteries to argue that Agatha Christie is actually not a cozy writer; that Columbo fits the mold of the cozy detective; and that the stories' portrayals of settings like the quaint English village reveal a more complicated society than meets the eye.

Samuel Herbert Dougal was intelligent, talented, and the recipient of a military medal. Outwardly, he seemed to embody all that Victorian England valued most. But he was also a career criminal whose appetite for sex and money propelled him through scandal after scandal; through the courts, prisons and asylums; and from woman to vulnerable woman. In 1903, the unexplained disappearance of Dougal’s latest inamorata, a wealthy spinster named Miss Holland, began to excite public speculation. A tireless hunt for the missing lady commenced, but, having been arrested on a sample charge of forgery, Dougal simply decided to wait it out. Meanwhile, on the outside, his real wife, Sarah, who had been the beneficiary of Dougal’s schemes over the course of a decade, had her own plans to escape official scrutiny. Would Miss Holland’s whereabouts be discovered? And who, if anyone, would be held to account for her disappearance?

Anna Katharine Green (1846-1935) was an American poet and novelist. Green has been called "the mother of the detective novel". Her main character was detective Ebenezer Gryce of the New York Metropolitan Police Force, but in three novels he is assisted by the nosy society spinster Amelia Butterworth, the prototype for Miss Marple. She also invented the 'girl detective': in the character of Violet Strange, a debutante with a secret life as a sleuth. Indeed, as journalist Kathy Hickman writes, Green "stamped the mystery genre with the distinctive features that would influence writers from Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle to contemporary authors of suspenseful "whodunits". She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories.

The South Florida PI is back in the Edgar Award–winning series from a national bestselling author and “the master of the high-stakes thriller” (Michael Connelly). National bestselling author Jonathon King continues his Edgar Award–winning series that follows a tormented ex-cop from Philadelphia to South Florida on a quest to earn redemption from his dark past. “Whether taking us to the dark corners of the Everglades or the hard streets of Philadelphia, King’s writing is gritty, vivid, and suspenseful” (Harlan Coben). A Killing Night: After three young female bartenders are murdered in Miami, and another goes missing in Philadelphia, private investigator Max Freeman is hired—by his ex-girlfriend Sherry—to look into the deaths. He accepts the job grudgingly, especially since Sherry is convinced the killer is a retired police officer who once saved Freeman’s life back in Philly. “Compelling from start to finish.” —The Miami Herald Acts of Nature: Max and Sherry’s vacation in the Everglades ends abruptly when Hurricane Simone slams into the Sunshine State, leaving them stranded in the swamp and forced to contend with opportunistic crooks looking to benefit from the disaster and hired muscle from a powerful oil company hoping to protect a lethal secret—regardless of who stands in the way. “An action-packed glide through the Glades.” —South Florida Sun-Sentinel Midnight Guardians: Freeman takes on a case involving a conspiracy to defraud Medicare—but he quickly discovers there’s more to it than a simple scam. Soon the former Philadelphia cop is calling upon his old street instincts when an ex-drug kingpin known as the Brown Man turns up—and Freeman’s girlfriend, Det. Sherry Richards, is put in harm’s way. “Captivating.” —Publishers Weekly Don’t Lose Her: When a pregnant judge is abducted while presiding over the extradition hearing of a notorious Columbian drug lord, Freeman follows her trail into the Everglades to save her and her unborn child before it’s too late. “This book moves with relentless abandon.” —Michael Connelly
