This collection impressed me as grim, dark and depressing. After a few stories, I gave up. I like my mysteries with a bit of sass, a bit of heroism, and some solid character development. Too much to ask of a short story, I guess.

The outstanding story here is "Entwined" by B. Tobin. About half of the others are good and some aren't really mystery or crime stories (compared to the previous year's, edited by Patterson, which are all mystery and crime stories). There have been better editors, in other words, than Ms. George.
