Four Volumes in Slipcase: Volume I: Early Escapades Volume II: Superior Sleuths Volume III: Police Procedures Volume IV: Murderous Minds Whether it's a classic whodunit, a brilliantly plotted detective story or a sophisticated psychological chiller, there's no greater pleasure than settling down with a good crime story.

These stories introduce many of crime fiction's finest heroes, including the crucial episodes that formed Ian Rankin's John Rebus and John Le Carré's spy–master George Smiley. Acclaimed masters of mystery such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Rex Stout and Edgar Wallace rub shoulders with less well known yet equally compelling writers like American mystery queen Anna Katharine Green and Cornell Woolrich, best known for 'Rear Window', famously immortalised in film by Alfred Hitchcock. Each story is introduced either by the authors themselves, by fellow crime writers, including Colin Dexter, Reginald Hill and Margaret Yorke, or by aficionados of the genre, like Patrick Marnham, Simon Brett and Marcel Berlins. Full of menace and diabolical twists, pitting rationalism against the supernatural, good against evil, these twenty masterpieces will baffle and entertain the most ingenious of armchair detectives. The Perfect Crime in the perfect length of story. These novellas and 'longer' short stories are tightly written but with the space for real psychological insight. Indeed, several of these stories give the background to some of the most famous characters in crime fiction.
