Published in 1963, this one has stories dating from 1956 to 1961. All of them seem to have first appeared in AHMM or to have been commissioned especially for this anthology. Lots of great names in this one, so expectations are high…
First up is “Ghost Story”, from Henry Kane, in which his noted P.I. character Pete Chambers unearths an old crime when it appears a ghost is taking retribution against the family members who killed him. James Holding’s “Where is Thy Sting?” is a fun but goofy story ab

As Alfred Hitchcock says, "It seems to me that when our century was newer the crime would not have happened in so pedestrian a manner. I very much doubt a pistol would have been used, since a pistol is decidedly not a woman's weapon, as so many mystery writers have been quick to point out for so many satisfying years. Perhaps a rolling-pin, a jungle knife brought back from the Amazon country years ago by the original owner who had traveled with Theodore Roosevelt, a dose of poison in the soup, a ...more

Here's another collection of stories from A. Hitchcock. They are all from the late 50's to early 60's.These anthologies are always a good read.So if, like me, you find a copy of this at a local book sale or used book store, jump in, buy it, and enjoy 16 quick mysteries!

This book was good. My favorite story was The Crime Machine. That story was perfect. 6/5. But a lot of the other stories were not even close to the quality of that so over all 3.75 but mainly for the story "The Crime Machine". It was just that wonderful. It was brilliant The book fell apart in my hand though. Turns out that happens a lot.

This was actually a pretty good collection of stories. A few of them had boring endings, but so many had good twists, it was hard to complain.

I am annoyed, however, that this book fell apart in my hands as I was reading it. So, I guess that was the first and last time.

It's true what they say: scary stuff from Way Back When ain't quite as scary now. That said, there are a few chills and thrills in this book, and it's kind of fun and interesting to get in the Wayback machine and pretend.

Una buena selección de historias, realizada por Hitchcock. En general, no tienen desperdicio.

Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock KBE was an iconic and highly influential film director and producer, who pioneered many techniques in the suspense and thriller genres.

Following a very substantial career in his native Britain in both silent films and talkies, Hitchcock moved to Hollywood and became an American citizen with dual nationality in 1956, thus he also remained a British subject.
