    Reader Reviews
    Excellent guide to mystery writing!, February 25, 2002 Reviewer: A reader from Atlanta, GA United States This is a remarkably balanced and highly entertaining collection of essays reflecting one writer's ideas about what constitutes the best in crime and mystery fiction. The two-page essays extend from Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination through P.D. James's A Taste for Death , forming a sort of history of the genre. Each essay contains a synopsis of the plot or theme, a critical assessment, and a list of first and recent editions. Keating, a prolific mystery writer, seems an ideal choice to compile such a work, and his wit and intelligence make these essays as much fun as they are informative. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
