Running From Legs and Other StoriesUnknown - 2000
Like his novels, McBain's stories are not neat little plot pieces -- just as in real life the characters' messy problems aren't cleared up at the end with pat solutions. In The Interview, an egotistical director manages to antagonize and alienate everyone connected to the movie industry when he is grilled about a drowning that occurred during a film shoot. A circus owner hires an aerialist in Fallen Angel and gets more than he bargained for. And, in the most affecting, famous story in this collection, The Last Spin, two opposing gang members play a game of Russian roulette.
