The Mystery Box
The Mystery Box
An MWA Anthology

A new Mystery Writers of America anthology—The Mystery Box, edited by Brad Meltzer—includes a short story by Tony entitled: "The Remaining Unknowns."

BUY THE BOOK from IndieBound, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.


"This all-original MWA anthology includes a nice mix of big names and rising stars among its 21 offerings, all plotted in some manner around a box (literal or metaphorical) and its contents."
   —Publishers Weekly

"I will confess that I had been relatively unfamiliar with Tony Broadbent before reading his excellent "The Remaining Unknowns." I will be sure to rectify that oversight. The story involves the member of a bomb squad who is called to a particularly difficult job. As he thinks about how to save the citizens of New York, he recollects about his past and his family, even as his own life hangs in the balance. The result is an edge-of-the-seat read with a ticking clock that drowns out all else."

A Study in Sherlock
Stories Inspired by the Sherlock Holmes Canon

Tony contributed to an anthology of stories entitled A Study In Sherlock. The book contains 17 stories written by such luminaries as Lee Child, Neal Gaiman, Jacqueline Winspear, Jan Burke, and Laura Lippman. Tony's story is entitled: "As to 'An Exact Knowledge of London.'"

The anthology is published by Poisoned Pen Press (hardback) and Random House (trade paper) and Tokyo Sogensha / Japan.

BUY THE BOOK from IndieBound, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.


Laurie R. King (The Beekeeper's Apprentice and 10 other Mary Russell novels) and Leslie S. Klinger (The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes) have not stuck to the usual suspects for this stellar anthology of new short stories that pay homage to the great detective...
   —Publishers Weekly

... But the best stories focus on the universal appeal of Holmes. Tony Broadbent in "As to 'An Exact Knowledge of London'" and Neil Gaiman in "The Case of Death and Honey" both explore the tantalizing question of how Holmes manages to be both fictional and immortal.

Tony Broadbent rather brilliantly brings Holmes and Watson to present-day London, in a quite different way from Sherlock. Equally dazzling is Neil Gaiman's tale of Holmes and bees in China. There isn't a dud here.
