Description
For over 50 years, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine has been one of the foremost magazines of mystery and suspense, and this impressive anthology of 34 stories reflects the diversity of every issue of the magazine: historicals and police procedurals, cozies and noirs, humor and suspense. From Jim Thompson in the 1950s and Donald Westlake in the 60s to recent stories by S.J. Rozan, Martin Limon, and Rhys Bowen—as well as Evan Hunter, Lawrence Block, Sara Paretsky, Ed McBain, Loren Estleman, and Jan Burke—here is more than a half-century of superb storytelling.

"[Linda] Landrigan, AHMM's editor-in-chief, has done an outstanding job of selecting 34 short stories to represent the half-century of her magazine's existence.... The writing is uniformly excellent, making it hard to single out individual stories for praise, but Donald E. Westlake's 'Good Night! Good Night!' about a murder victim's search for his killer, which echoes Joel Townsley Rogers classic novel The Stopped Clock, and Bill Pronzini's Nameless Detective tale, 'Death of a Nobody,' are standouts. Perhaps this volume's greatest virtue is providing a showcase for the gifts of lesser-known writers such as Stephen Wasylyk and Henry Slesar. This will be a must-have for all serious mystery readers."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
