Cornucopia of Crime: Memories and Summations. Francis M. Nevins has spent the past 40 years writing about crime, including six novels and numerous short stories. But he is also well-known for his writing ABOUT the people who write crime fiction and no one knows the masters of the art better than he. This 456-page juggernaut is full of lore about the titans of mystery, such as Cornell Woolrich, Ellery Queen, Erle Stanley Gardner, as well as critiques of classic noir movies, bios of several obscure but deserving authors of yesteryear. It has an exhaustive index and is an essential addition to a mystery lover's library.
