Publisher Comments:

Now, in the appealing and collectible Pocket Classics format, an anthology of beloved, classic detective stories—riveting and irresistibly addictive tales of crimes and those who unravel them.

Beginning with modern masters such as Sara Paretsky, Ruth Rendell, and Ian Rankin, this collection works its way back through the golden age of the 1920s and 30s to the genres source in Edgar Allan Poe and Arthur Conan Doyle. The famous detectives who stalk these pages range from the brilliant and eccentric (Conan Doyles Sherlock Holmes and Poes C. Auguste Dupin) to the deceptively unlikely (G. K. Chestertons humble priest, Father Brown; and Agatha Christies tweedy spinster, Miss Marple); from the tough-guy private eyes created by Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler to accidental bystanders, such as the perceptive neighbors in Susan Glaspells haunting “A Jury of Her Peers.”

From classic whodunits featuring Erle Stanley Gardners Perry Mason and Georges Simenons Inspector Maigret to Jorge Luis Borgess postmodern tribute to Poe in “Death and the Compass,” the stories in this volume will tantalize, perplex, and amaze.
