Short Order Crooks

Dave ran a list of what he thinks are the best crime novels and asked for input. I was thinking about what to add to his list, but I realized summer is really my favorite time for short stories and crime fiction has some real doozies. So here’s my list of my favorite/the best crime short stories of all time.

1. By Dawn’s Early Light by Lawrence Block

2. Memento Mori by Jonathan Nolan

3. The Killers by Ernest Hemingway

4. Hilly Palmer’s Last Case by Duane Swierczynski

5. Until Gwen by Dennis Lehane

Honorable Mention: Too Many Crooks by Donald Westlake
