KIRKUS REVIEW

To celebrate 15 years of publication this annual here collects tops in its field chronologically from its first to its 14th edition and includes its current choice for the present year. You can backtrack to Margaret Manners' Body In The Barn, Q. Patrick's A Boy's Will, or Samuel Blas' Revenge. There's Elston's Blackmail, the Hawkins' The Killer Is Loose, Hunter's First Offense to catch up on, and Fearing, Slesar and O'Farrell show off some slick tricks. The 1959 nominee is Gilbert Ralston's Bottle of Death which adds to the suspense. An overall chill and thrill, I-spy, assemblage for critical viewing.
