Overview

From the puzzle tale in Alexandre Dumas' "The Man of the Knife" to Gerald Tollesfrud's police procedural "Switch," this richly varied collection spans more than 200 years and encompasses virtually every kind of crime story. Ernest Leong's "Incense Sticks" offers a taste of noir thriller. Allen Beack's "Always Together" features dark, bloody fratricide. Ferenc Molnar's "The Best Policy" tells a fasinating tale of embezzlement, while Gary Lovisi's "New Blood" stars a compelling serial killer. There's kidnapping in Edgar Wallace's "The Slavemaker," bigamy in Joyce Kilmer's "Whitemail," drive-by shootings in Dane Gregory's "Jackie Won't Be Home," and a crime so bizarre in Geoggrey Vace's "The Hard-Luck Kid" that it simply defies classification. Each one will get the blood racing and the mind working in overdrive.

A fun collection of short stories - mostly about crimes, mysteries or horrible happenings. These are all old, and the plots are clever - even when we've heard them before (these are usually the originals!!) in some recent movie or story.Publisher info:From the puzzle tale in Alexandre Dumas¿s ¿The Man of the Knife¿ to Gerald Tollesfrud¿s police procedural ¿Switch,¿ this richly varied collection spans more than 200 years and encompasses virtually every kind of crime story.
