KIRKUS REVIEW

Continuing the bloody good tradition in this 21st annual are such stalwarts as Ellery Queen, Miriam Allen deFord, Brian Cleeve, Lloyd Biggle, Jr., Ross Macdonald and Shirley Jackson. Straight detection has given way this year to the psychological startler (represented here most effectively in Miss Jackson's The Possibility of Evil) and to the light, right touch of parody.
