13 Claws Anthology

Holy Menagerie! Are animals our friends…or our nemesis?

13 Claws is the third anthology sponsored by the Mesdames of Mayhem. Once again the stories range from thrillers to cozies to noir.

What all the stories have in common is that they centre on animals. Fifteen authors have penned 17 fantastic tales (pun intended), featuring cats, dogs, snakes, an exotic fish and a dragon!

Three of the stories are by writers new to the crime genre. They were found through a contest which hopefully will be a standard for all future anthologies in the series.

Reviews for 13 Claws:

“A great mix of shuddery dark and tongue-in-cheek funny. What devious minds all these nice women have.”
~ Maureen Jennings, author of Murdoch Mysteries, the Tom Tyler series and Christine Morris Books.

There’s enough suspense and intellectual fascination built into the plots of the majority of stories to satisfy even the most ferociously cynophobic reader.”

∼Jack Batten, Whodunit, The Toronto Star
