"American Crime Stories" by John Escott

Criminals in the United States of America are much the same as criminals in any other place. They lie, cheat, steal, carry guns, break into houses — and murder people.
Sometimes they get caught, sometimes they don't. And some of them have bad dreams for the rest of their lives. These seven stories by well-known American writers show us the many faces of crime. There are murders of passion, and of revenge; murders that look like suicides or accidents. There is robbery and mugging, fear and hate, love and laziness. There are the innocent and the guilty — but which are which? And there are the detectives: the amateur Louise, who won't accept that her cousin's death was suicide, and who goes looking for a lipstick; and the
coolly professional private eye, who knows whose hand is behind the machine guns and hand grenades on a stormy night in Couffignal.
We begin with Death Wish, with a man leaning over the Morrissey Bridge late at night- a man with dark thoughts of suicide in his mind.
