ROGUES GALLERY, Ellery Queen's superb 1945 anthology, centered around “modern” criminals (circa 1945) as protagonists

One of Queen’s earliest, and best, collections of short-stories-with-a-theme, plus lovely (and sometimes extensive) introductions to each. The best, IMO, are “Accident”, Agatha Christie, 1934; “Portrait of a Murderer”, Q. Patrick, 1942; “Blood Sacrifice”, Dorothy L.
