KIRKUS REVIEW

Contributed by the Mystery Writers of America, these stories provide tense to terrifying entertainment in an anthology which stresses emotional violence rather than intellectual invention. The contributors are contemporary, and among them are John Dickson Carr, Ellery Queen, Anthony Boucher, Quentin Patrick, Will Oursler, Lillian de la Torre, George Harmon Coxe, Hugh Pentecost, Stuart Palmer, D.B. Olsen, and the editors as well. Seven of the stories make their debut here, and the collection maintains a superior standard of selection and performance.
