KIRKUS REVIEW

Eighteen accounts from the records of true crime-master murders -- memorable misdeeds. The narrators are all crime connoisseurs of distinction, -- Edmund Pearson, William Roughead, Dorothy Sayers, Alexander Woollcott, William Bolitho, Christopher Morley and John Rhode. This is, perhaps, an acquired taste -- but might as well start the young off with the best -- for all these writers approach their sanguinary with affectionate artistry.
