Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In 1929, Dorothy L. Sayers published her landmark anthology, The Omnibus of Crime. More recently, Tony Hillerman and Rosemary Herbert decided it was time to produce a definitive new anthology representing the best of the genre since then - the critically acclaimed A New Omnibus of Crime. This extraordinary collection emphasizes the most exciting styles and voices in each genre, rather than taking a typical decade-by-decade approach. As a result, A New Omnibus of Crime boasts a broad range of engaging, page-turning, and spine-tingling selections from the past eight decades. Stories in this collection include Patricia Highsmith's "Woodrow Wilson's Necktie" Sue Grafton's "A Poison That Leaves No Trace" Alexander McCall Smith's "He Loved to Go for Drives with His Father" and many more. A New Omnibus of Crime is a marvelous achievement that brings together some of the greatest crime and mystery short fiction ever collected.

Summary: "The best and most satisfying mystery bargain to come along in years. It will give readers countless hours of pleasure and surprise in one volume."-- Cleveland Plain Dealer "Not a clunker in the bunch. Dorothy Sayers edited a classic 1920 collection of short stories called 'The Omnibus of Crime.' There have been numerous collections since then, but until now, none has had the depth, intelligence and chutzpah to call itself 'A New Omnibus of Crime'"-- Bloomberg Newsr "A worthy successor to Dorothy L. Sayers's classic Omnibus of Crime (1929)."-- Publishers Weekly "Picking up where Dorothy L. Sayers's 1920 classic, The Omnibus of Crime, left off, this collection gathers works of short mystery fiction from the end of World War I to today, including pieces by Raymond Chandler, Ross Macdonald, Dashiell Hammett, Elmore Leonard, Ruth Rendell and P.D. James."-- Good Housekeepingr (Holiday Gift Picks) " A New Omnibus of Crime is essential for anyone with more than a passing interest in detective fiction. Brilliantly assembled, and beautifully edited by people who know what they're doing." --Robert B. Parker, author of Double Play and Cold Service. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0195370716
