KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection which emphasizes the detective of recent times in stories which have not appeared in any other anthology, most of which have not been in book form and some of which have been written, or rewritten, especially for this, and of which members of the Mystery Writers of America are authors. Each story is followed by a Detective Who's Who biography. John Dickson Carr, Matthew Head, Harold Masur, James Fox, Clayton Rawson, D.B. Olsen, Lawrence Blochman, Stewart Sterling, August Derleth, Ellery Queen, Brett Halliday, Fredric Brown, George Harmon Coxe, Q. Patrick, Kelley Roos, Stuart Palmer are among the better known; Verne Chute, Lillian de la Torre and others round out the round-up of the current crop. A sure entertainment bet which will be of special interest to the mystery market.
