Life Is Short and Then You Die: Mystery Writers of America Presents First Encounters with Murder
Author: Kelley Armstrong (Editor)
Estimated Ship Date: September 13, 2019Adolescence is a time of “firsts.” First kiss. First love. First loss. First job. The first taste of adult responsibilities, and the first look at an independent life away from both the restrictions and the security of home.
And in this case, a very different type of “first”: murder.
This story collection adds a sinister spin to the joy and pain of firsts that have always been a major part of teen life, whether it be high school cliques who take the term “backstabbing” too seriously, stumbling upon a body on the way home from school, or receiving a Snapchat message that promises something deadly.
