James Holding’s Murder and Mayhem MEGAPACK ™: 24 Classic Mystery Stories and a Poem

James Holding (Author)

James Holding enjoys a reputation as one of the more prolific contributors to the mystery magazines of the 1960s and 1970s. (Our bibliography shows nearly 200 stories published in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Magazine, etc.) He had series, such as the “Leroy King” stories (which poke gentle fun at “Ellery Queen”). He had standalones. He had mysteries of every sort imaginable — and this volume includes a selection of 24 choice crimes (plus a poem)…a thematic grouping involving murder and mayhem. Included are:
