From the Publisher

This book also brings together stories by some other well-known writers of this genre—Wilkie Collins, Edgar Allan Poe, Jack Bilbo and others. Not all the stories involve murder, but there is some bloodshed for sure that comes about by chance. In all of them the writer is so skilled with words that the reader remains riveted till the finish.

Mysterious and suspenseful, The Perfect Murder is just the book for those who like their mystery stories short yet compelling. This is a book that can be read over a day or two or on a long journey—all the while keeping a watchful eye out for any signs of odd behaviour from the co-passengers!
