9780897332255: Locked Room Puzzles: Academy Mystery Novellas

The locked room mystery is a subgenre of detective fiction in which a crime is committed under apparently impossible circumstances. Greenberg and Pronzini's novel is a collection of these "locked room mysteries," and is sure to entertain—and confound—its readers.

About the Author:

Bill Pronzini is simply one of the masters. He seems to have taken a crack at just about every genre: mysteries, noirish thrillers, historicals, locked-room mysteries, adventure novels, spy capers, men's action, westerns, and, of course, his masterful, long-running Nameless private detective series, now entering its fourth decade, with no signs of creative flagging. He's also ghosted several Brett Halliday short stories as Michael Shayne for Mike Shayne's Mystery Magazine, and has managed to collaborate with such fellow writers as John Lutz, Barry Wahlberg, Collin Wilcox and Marcia Muller. Still, if he never ventured into fiction writing, his non-fiction work, as both writer and editor, would still earn him a place in the P.I. genre's Hall of Fame.
