The Murder MEGAPACK ™: 23 Classic and Modern Tales of Crime and Murder

Talmage Powell (Author), Rufus King (Author), James Holding (Author)

Murder — it’s one of the staples of mystery fiction. One of the unwritten rules of the mystery novel is to start your murder in the first chapter…and on the first page, if possible! Collected here are 23 tales of murder. Some are fiendish. (“The Doorbell” is especially chilling.) Some are exotic. (Egyptian mummy murder? You bet!) Some take place in exotic locations. (The Canadian woods? At sea? In foreign countries? Why not!) What they all have in common, though, is a fiendish mastermind trying (and sometimes succeeding) in getting away with the ultimate crime…MURDER! Included are:
