Product description


"In honor of a decade of CrimeFest, Edwards and Muller have assembled top-notch talent in this entertaining anthology of 20 original short stories. Highlights include two impossible crime tales: Simon Brett's "The Last Locked Room," about a retired policeman's attempts to solve the cold case of the locked-room death of his grandfather, a mystery novelist specializing in concocting such crimes; and Ann Cleeves's "Moses and the Locked Tent Mystery," set during a safari in Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. Mick Herron's "How Many Cats Have You Killed?" pokes fun at the double standards of mystery readers, who easily tolerate the fictional slaughter of people, but not of cats. Maj Sjöwall fans will revel in "Long Time, No See," about the chilling aftermath of an uncomfortable reunion of schoolmates almost 40 years after their last encounter. High-quality entries from the likes of Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, and Ian Rankin, as well as from lesser-known authors such as Bill Beverly, elevate this above similar volumes."--Publishers Weekly

"This volume is for red-meat crime fans who love murder, mayhem, and plenty of it."--Kirkus Reviews

"A remarkable compilation of fresh and unexpected stories from the best in the genre."--Library Journal, Starred Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

MARTIN EDWARDS is an award-winning crime writer best known for two series of novels set in Liverpool and the Lake District. He is series consultant for British Library Crime Classics, the Vice Chair of the Crime Writers' Association, and President of the Detection Club. The Golden Age of Murder, his study of the Detection Club, was published in 2015 to international acclaim, and has been nominated for both the Edgar and Agatha awards for the year's best book about the genre.

Adrian Muller is one of the co-founders of CrimeFest, the international crime fiction convention.

Peter James' Roy Grace detective novels have sold over nineteen million copies worldwide, have had twelve consecutive Sunday Times number-ones and are published in thirty-seven territories. Peter has won many literary awards, including the publicly voted ITV3 Crime Thriller Awards People's Bestseller Dagger, WH Smith readers' The Best Crime Author of All Time, and the Crime Writers' Association's Diamond Dagger Award.

Bill Beverly teaches at Trinity University in Washington, DC. His debut novel, Dodgers (No Exit Press), won the Gold Dagger and John Creasey New Blood Dagger from the CWA, the British Book Award, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His dissertation on criminal fugitives became the book On the Lam: Narratives of Flight in J. Edgar Hoover's America.

Simon Brett has published over a hundred books, many of them crime novels, including the Charles Paris, Fethering, Mrs Pargeter, and Blotto and Twinks series. His extensive comedy writing includes the series After Henry, which was successful on both radio and television. In 2014 he received the Crime Writers' Association's highest award, the Diamond Dagger, and in 2016 he was awarded an OBE for services to literature.
