Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler's new anthology brings together the most cunning, ruthless, and brilliant criminals in mystery fiction, for the biggest compendium of bad guys (and girls) ever assembled. The best mysteries--whether detective, historical, police procedural, cozy, or comedy--have one thing in common: a memorable perpetrator. For every Sherlock Holmes or Sam Spade in noble pursuit, there's a Count Dracula, a Lester Leith, or a Jimmy Valentine. These are the rogues and villains who haunt our imaginations--and who often have more in common with their heroic counterparts than we might expect. Now, for the first time ever, Otto Penzler gathers the iconic traitors, thieves, con men, sociopaths, and killers who have crept through the mystery canon over the past 150 years, captivating and horrifying readers in equal measure. The 72 handpicked stories in this collection introduce us to the most depraved of psyches, from iconic antiheroes like Maurice Leblanc's Arsène Lupin and Sax Rohmer's Dr. Fu Manchu to contemporary delinquents like Lawrence Block's Ehrengraf and Donald Westlake's Dortmunder, and include unforgettable tales by Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Washington Irving, Jack London, H.G. Wells, Sinclair Lewis, O. Henry, Edgar Wallace, Leslie Charteris, Erle Stanley Gardner, Edward D. Hoch, Max Allan Collins, Loren D. Estleman, and many more.

Edgar Award–winning editor Otto Penzler's latest anthology takes its inspiration from the historical enigma whose name has become synonymous with fear: Jack the Ripper. Of the real-life serial killers whose gruesome acts have been splashed across headlines, none has reached the mythical status of Jack the Ripper. In the Ripper's wake, terror swept through the streets of London’s East End in the fall of 1888. As quickly as his nightmarish reign came, Saucy Jack vanished without a trace—leaving future generations to speculate upon his identity and whereabouts. He was diabolical in a way never seen before—a killer who taunted the police, came up with his own legendary monikers, and, ultimately, got away with his heinous crimes. More than a century later, the man “from hell” continues to live on in the imaginations of readers everywhere—and in some of the most spec­tacularly unnerving stories, both fiction and nonfiction, ever written. The Big Book of Jack the Ripper immerses you in the utterly chilling world of Red Jack’s London, where his unprecedented evil still lurks. Including: · Legendary stories by Marie Belloc Lowndes, Robert Bloch, and Ellery Queen · Captivating essays from George Bernard Shaw, Stephen Hunter, and Peter Underwood · Riveting new stories by contemporary masters Jeffrey Deaver, Loren D. Estleman, Lyndsay Faye, and many more · Astonishing theories from the world’s foremost Ripperologists From the Ripper Vault: · Demonic letters from Jack himself · Gruesome postmortem exams documenting all the bits and pieces of the cases · Harrowing witness statements taken on those hellish nights · Breaking newspaper accounts of the East End hysteria From the Trade Paperback edition.

To celebrate the release of her novel Barefoot on Baker Street, Charlotte Anne Walters undertook the task of reading and reviewing one of the original Sherlock Holmes short stories every day until she had completed all 56. The reviews were posted daily on her blog and attracted viewers from all over the world. The reviews are full of humour and Holmesian insight, ending in a score out of ten for each story. This book contains all 56 blogs plus additional material including reviews of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's four Holmes novels. Although it was a pleasure for a life-long Holmes admirer to re-visit the stories, trying to do this on top of holding down a busy full-time job and family commitments was a big challenge - resulting in some stressful but comical moments detailed in the blogs. Even Mr Walters couldn't resist throwing in a few comments of his own. Charlotte is donating all her royalties from this publication to the Undershaw Preservation Trust, a charity striving to protect and restore the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - saveundershaw.com.

Sherlock Holmes' Buch der Fälle (Original: The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes) ist eine von Arthur Conan Doyle geschriebene Sammlung von zwölf Krimi-Kurzgeschichten um seinen berühmten Detektiv Sherlock Holmes und dessen Freund Dr. Watson, die 1927 in Großbritannien veröffentlicht wurde. Das Buch der Fälle enthält die letzten zwölf Sherlock-Holmes-Erzählungen, die Doyle zwischen 1921 und 1927 schrieb. Zuvor hatte der Autor bereits in Seine Abschiedsvorstellung acht Detektivgeschichten zusammengefasst. Die einzelnen Episoden des Buchs der Fälle wurden, wie es bei Doyles Kurzgeschichten allgemein üblich war, zunächst einzeln in Zeitschriften veröffentlicht und danach in einem Sammelband als Buch auf den Markt gebracht. Sherlock Holmes' Buch der Fälle wurde zeitgleich in Großbritannien und den USA im Juni 1927 veröffentlicht. Allerdings gab es Differenzen bezüglich der Schreibweise des Titels. So sprach die englische Ausgabe von einem Case-Book, die amerikanische von einem Case Book und spätere Auflagen gar von einem "Casebook". Das Buch enthält zwölf Kurzgeschichten, die in der deutschen Version jeweils rund 30 bis 40 Seiten umfassen. Die Buchstaben in eckigen Klammern bezeichnen die inzwischen fest etablierten Abkürzungen. Dieser letzte Band mit Sherlock-Holmes-Abenteuern unterscheidet sich von früheren Werken dadurch, dass nicht alle Geschichten aus Watsons Perspektive erzählt werden. In den Geschichten Der erbleichte Soldat und Die Löwenmähne fungiert Holmes selbst als Erzähler; das Abenteuer Der Mazarin-Stein wird in der dritten Person geschildert.
