KIRKUS REVIEW

A stunning, luxurious collection (for relatively next to nothing) to take care of a lifetime of little white nights -- this includes four novels -- Agatha Christie's What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!, Kenneth Fearing's The Big Clock, Dick Francis' Enquiry and the editor's The Far Side of the Dollar along with just about classic short stories by Stanley Ellin, Graham Greene, Hammett, Cheever, R.L. Stevenson, James Cain, Margaret Millar, Roald Dahl, Michael Gilbert, Patricia Highsmith and Flannery O'Connor. Not to mention a thoughtful appreciation of the genre in its various moods and mutations by Mr. Macdonald. Obligatory.
