KIRKUS REVIEW

Sixteen stories selected from some 800 entries in the annual contest sponsored by Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine represent already accredited authors and a wide range of styles and talents. Among the established book-lengthers are Simenon, Nicholas Blake, Joseph Shearing, Ben Hecht, Edmund Crispin, Fredric Brown, Q. Patrick, Clayton Rawson, Helen McCloy, Leslie Charteris, Wilbur Daniel Steele. The composite provides a more professional and substantial showing than Cooke's collection, Best Detective Stories of the Year 1949 (Dutton -- P. 341).
