Mystery! Horror! Crime!
Dashiell Hammett, Saki, Stephen Leacock, Edgar Allan Poe, Evelyn Waugh, Dorothy Sayers, John Russell, Rex Stout -- these are just a few of the authors represented in this complete mystery anthology.

To make the Reader complete, Dashiell Hammett's novelette, The Farewell Murder is included, a story that will delight his many fans. Fiction, fact, poetry, drama, puzzlement -- all these make up an all-inclusive mystery reader.
A book of chills, thrills, fun and puzzlement, composed of crimedom's greatest names, and compiled for the unremitting pleasure of the reader.
