2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ray59 on December 19, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This big hardcover anthology does not appear to have been re-issued since its debut in the 1960s, but it is still around on the used book market. Each chapter is a stand-alone work. The anthology is interesting in that the contents are niether purely fictional accounts, nor purely historical crime cases. Instead, the editor chooses to move back and forth between the recounting of true crimes and the spinning of fictional mysteries. The only qualification was that each chapter selection had to be a story that would keep the reader on THE EDGE OF THE CHAIR!

I found some chapters more riveting than others. That being said, the book is interesting throughout. Considering the absurdly low price anthologies such as this command on the used book market, it is certainly a solid entertainment value. Both mystery and true crime fans will find something to enjoy here.
