Here are forty-seven heart-gripping tales on the fine art of murder, introduced by the expert in suspenseful storytelling, the late Alfred Hitchcock. Profit, revenge, accident, or assassination—whatever the motive, these stories from the annals of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine have all the twists and turns—and terror—that are the trademarks of the master himself.

You'll find an acrostic puzzle maker who foretells the fate of her enemies; a mail-corresponding chess player who makes unusual moves against his opponent; a life guard who only wants to save those who deserve to live; a mother-daughter team interested in rich husbands and their early demise; and a gangland mediator who sees to it that his decisions are final. You'll also meet double-crossed bank robbers, greedy business partners, psychotic "nice guys," heartless train looters, and a girl who helps plan her own kidnapping—and lethal escape.
