MURDER—HIS AND HERS by Barbara Collins


by Barbara Collins & Max Allan Collins

Pub Date: April 1st, 2001
ISBN: 0-7862-3145-9
Publisher: Five Star/Gale Cengage

Following a pair (naturally) of brief introductions, this husband-and-wife team presents eight reprints from the past decade: three by hard-boiled specialist Max (Mourn the Living, 1999, etc.), three by short-story specialist Barbara (Too Many Tomcats, 1999), and two collaborations: "Eddie Haskell in a Short Skirt," which pits a father-daughter detective team against their embezzling, then defunct, business manager; and "A Cruise to Forget," in which a Caribbean cruise does nothing for the love-life of a wealthy woman and her much younger husband.
