The purest type of detective tale consists of against the law solved by way of remark and deduction, instead of good fortune, twist of fate or confession. The ideal type of detection comprises the reason of an most unlikely crime, even if this type of vanishing act that might make Houdini proud, a homicide that leaves no obvious hint, or the main not going villain that you can imagine.
Virtually all the nice writers of detective fiction have produced masterpieces during this style, together with Agatha Christie, Edgar Allan Poe, Dorothy L. Sayers, Arthur Conan Doyle, Raymond Chandler, G.K. Chesterton, John Dickson Carr, Dashiell Hammett, Ngaio Marsh and Stephen King.
In this definitive assortment, Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler selects a multifarious combine from around the complete historical past of the locked room tale, which should still shape the cornerstone of any crime reader's library.
