Overview

Collected in these pages are the stories of twenty-four artful artisans of crime fiction. Although most of the stories are built on sudden death, all dispense with the ordinary whodunit formula to probe the dangerous passions of the murderer's mind. The few that don't involve the act of murder nonetheless deal with serious transgressions of society's rules.

Michele Slung has carefully chosen stories penned by some of the best writers of past and present - among them Nobel laureates, hardcore realists, and master ironists.
