From the puzzle tale in Alexandre Dumas's âThe Man of the Knifeâ to Gerald Tollesfrud's police procedural âSwitch,â this richly varied collection spans more than 200 years and encompasses virtually every kind of crime story. Ernest Leong's âIncense Sticksâ offers a taste of the noir thriller. Allen Beack's âAlways Togetherâ features dark, bloody fratricide. Ferenc Molnar's âThe Best Policyâ tells a fascinating tale of embezzlement, while Gary Lovisi's âNew Bloodâ stars a compelling serial killer. There's kidnapping in Edgar Wallace's âThe Slavemaker,â bigamy in Joyce Kilmer's âWhitemail,â drive-by shootings in Dane Gregory's âJackie Won't Be Home,â and a crime so bizarre in Geoggrey Vace's âThe Hard-Luck Kidâ that it simply defies classification. Each one will get the blood racing and the mind working in overdrive.
