New York Times bestsellers Ed McBain, Walter Mosely, and Donald Westlake each provided a brand-new, never-before-published tale for this unique collection of stories edited by bestselling author and mystery legend Ed McBain.

"Merely Hate" by Ed McBain: When a string of Muslim cabdrivers are killed, and the evidence points to another ethnic group, the detectives of the 87th Precinct must hunt down a killer before the city explodes in violence.

"Archibald Lawless, Anarchist at Large: Walking the Line" by Walter Mosley: Felix Orlean is a New York City journalism student who needs a job to cover his rent. An ad in the paper leads him to Archibald Lawless, and a descent into a shadow world where no one and nothing is as it first seems.

"Walking Around Money" by Donald E. Westlake: The master of the comic mystery is back with an all-new novella featuring hapless crook John Dortmunder, who gets involved in a crime that supposedly no one will ever know happened. Naturally, when something it too good to be true, it usually is, and Dortmunder is going to get to the bottom of this caper before he's left holding the bag.

About the Author:

Ed McBain was also known as Evan Hunter. His writing career has spanned almost five decades, from his first novel, The Blackboard Jungle, in 1954 to the screenplay for Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds to Candyland, written in tandem with his alter ego, Ed McBain, to his most recent novel, The Moment She Was Gone. He is the first American ever to receive the Diamond Dagger, the British Crime Writers Association's highest award. He also holds the Mystery Writers of America's prestigious Grand Master Award. His last 87th Precinct novel was Fiddlers. Evan Hunter / Ed McBain passed away in Fall 2005.


Walter Mosley is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-three critically acclaimed books and his work has been translated into twenty-one languages. His popular mysteries featuring Easy Rawlins began with Devil in a Blue Dress in 1990. His most recent novels are The Wave and Fortunate Son.

Donald Westlake has written numerous novels during the past 40 years, under his own name and various pseudonyms--most famously Richard Stark. He is generally regarded as the greatest writer of comic mystery of all time. Many of his books have been made into movies, including The Hunter which was filmed first as the noir classic with Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson, and then as Payback starring Mel Gibson. He has won three Edgar Allan Poe Awards, and has been named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America.

From AudioFile:
This anthology matches five novellas by prominent mystery writers with appropriate readers. Gravelly voiced Richard Ferrone reads Ed McBain's gritty story of purported hate crimes. Irish-accented John Keating delivers Anne Perry's story of an Irish politician held hostage. Wise-guy David Prete narrates Donald Westlake's caper story, starring New York City thief Dortmunder. And nerdy-sounding Robert Fass portrays Jeffrey Deaver's twisty tale of a police statistician investigating suspicious suicides. Nothing obvious ties Carrington MacDuffie to Sharyn McCrumb's story of a slave at a medical school in pre-Civil War Georgia, but her command of voices and accent makes her a good choice. Perry's "Hostages" is preachy and farfetched, but in general this well-performed mix is solid entertainment. W.M. AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
