MURDER: Plain and Fanciful

Collected by the Librarian of the University of Colorado Libraries and mystery reviewer of The Chicago Sun, this is an anthology of fictional and factual accounts of murder selected by standards of personal predilection and public inaccessibility. From the classical chronicling of Roughead, Burke, de la Torre, to the modern tale-telling of Boucher, Bemelmans, Croft, Flanner; from the scholarship of Professor Hotson's version of the murder of Marlowe to Justice Felix Frankfurter's resume of the Sacco-Vanzetti case, this offers an infinite variety of literary merit and enigmatic entertainment.
