"Another perfect stocking stuffer for the person who has everything -- and plans to leave it to you. It's been said that Christmas brings out the best in everyone. This is certainly true of mystery writers, who seem to have been inspired to their best work by the holiday season.
"Come and celebrate. Burn a Yule log with a gang of master detectives: the likes of Nero Wolfe (Christmas Party) , Roderick Alleyn (Death on the Air) , and Lord Peter Wimsey (The Necklace of Pearls). Share a criminous laugh with Woody Allen and Damon Runyon. And enjoy some surprise appearances by O. Henry, Anton Chekov, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Mary Roberts Rinehart.
Within these covers are stories for every nasty taste: tales of murder, robbery, kidnapping, and espionage. They'll help to make the season bright.
"Merry Christmas. And God help us, every one. "
