TO THE QUEEN'S TASTE

The amplest anthological presentation in some time, here is a collection of 36 stories, some of which are genuine detective discoveries, all of which result from the ""patience, persistence and passion"" of the editors who have spent many years in research and selection. Here are tales of master detectives and master crimes which range from the intellectual values of Christopher Morley, E.C. Bentley, G.K. Chesterton, Lillian de la Torre, to the more physical properties of James Cain, Eric Ambler, Craig Rice, Dashiell Hammett, Francis Iles, to the specifies of humor-Perelmen, Mark Twain, and on down a long list of impressive names and pretty impressive material which- if it does not rank with the collector's choices in 101 Years' Entertainment, comes fairly close. Enthusiastic editing by the Queens preface and place each contributor.
