KIRKUS REVIEW

It seems improbable but if you could restrict yourself to one a day you'd have a week of Crime""; ditto suspense, detection and the macabre plus ""A Short Week of Long Ones"" in a very fine collection. In which you'll find one of the slickest bank robberies in the fictional docket pulled off by a biology professor who just wants to get even with a bank teller; a set of twins who turn out to be fatally too smart for their own good; a wounded man trapped on a mountain with his wife who is hungrily calculating her own survival; a hidden Jew, grateful for the benevolence of his two servants who have neglected to tell him that WWII is over; a prisoner on a Devil's Island who kills the same man twice. Contributors include a number of new names along with old pros Ross MacDonald, Romain Gary and Gerald Kersh.
