The Best American Mystery Stories 2019

“Payback,” WMG Publishing. This romantic suspense story appeared in the Fiction River anthology, Hard Choices.

Tonya D. Price’s riveting “Payback” begins with a dog being chased down a country road by the reckless driver of a sports car; an act of reprisal from the narrator sets off a breathless chain of events demonstrating the extremes of human behavior.

Praise & Reviews

“Riveting,” is, I think, a good word for all of Tonya’s short fiction. She writes riveting short stories.

“The Christmas Chase” is riveting. Once you join Elise on her hunt for a Christmas tree, you won’t be able to catch your breath until the story ends. This story will have you on the edge of your seat. Which is what all the best suspense stories do."
