"Hutchings assembles another winning anthology...with this collection of 26 mystery stories in translation, representing 15 countries and 11 languages and chosen from a...monthly series in Ellery Queen mystery magazine. The selection includes most of the subgenres--noirs, whodunits, procedurals and thrillers--and though few of the authors will be familiar to mainstream readers, the writing is uniformly excellent"--Publishers Weekly.

Murder has no borders- nor do mystery writers- Japan to Malawi to Russia- this is a great international collection of short story mysteries.
