Washington Independent Review of Books highlighted the nominees for the Agatha Award for Best Short Story, and invited them to "suggest an additional story — a recent favorite — for readers here to seek out, with bonus points for any resonance or connections with their own works."
B.K. Stevens, nominated for her excellent story "The Last Blue Glass," had this to say:
When I looked for a story “connected” to mine, I thought of Robert Lopresti’s “Nakhshon,” published in Jewish Noir.
In both stories, someone others see as helpless gets caught up in a
wrenching situation and decides to strike back. The situations and the
decisions are very different, but both characters face tough,
potentially deadly dilemmas.
