Synopsis: Gathers a chilling selection of the classics from the mystery genre, including stories of crime by Jack Ritchie, Lord Dunsany, Cornell Woolrich, and Russell Maloney, and the Thomas Burke tale, "The Hands of Mr. Ottermole."

From Publishers Weekly: The 11 short stories collected here were chosen by Roosevelt ( Murder in the Oval Office ) because contemporary "readers . . . don't know many of these classic tales." Some have withstood the test of time: Cornell Woolrich's suspenseful Three O'Clock ; Steve Fisher's Laura -esque study of obsessive perversion, Goodbye, Hannah ; Russell Maloney's farcical Inflexible Logic , in which six monkeys at typewriters do, indeed, write Hamlet . Craig Rice's One More Clue is a fine introduction to her lawyer/sleuth John J. Malone, and Stanley Ellin's Coin of the Realm remains a gripping narrative. But some entries disappoint: Harry Kemelman's suspend-your-disbelief study in deduction, The Nine Mile Walk , and Lord Dunsany's easy-to-solve The Two Bottles of Relish , among others. Since the stories do not focus exclusively on "the perfect crime," the collection is deceptively titled.
