Synopsis

"A wonderful collection, and ridiculously inexpensive for all these delightful stories." - Otto Penzler From Ed McBain to Sara Paretsky: a 50th anniversary celebration of mystery masterworks. For fifty years Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine has been one of the foremost magazines of mystery and suspense. This commemorative anthology features such bestselling writers as Lawrence Block and Jan Burke, just two of the esteemed contributors to have appeared in the magazine's pages over the past five decades. Published to coincide with the celebration of AHMM's golden anniversary, this anthology reflects the diversity of every issue of the magazine: historicals and police procedurals, cozies and noirs, humor and suspense. From Jim Thompson in the fifties and Donald Westlake in the sixties, to recent stories by S.J. Rozan, Martin Limon, and Rhys Bowen, this anthology documents a half century of great storytelling.
