    Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and Christie’s wildly unconventional investigator Parker Pyne all make appearances in The Regatta Mystery and Other Stories, a riveting collection of short stories featuring a host of murderous crimes.

    Two novellas and two short stories featuring Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Bill Pronzini’s iconic Nameless Detective “Zigzag” is an original novella, in which a safe and simple accident investigation becomes the unraveling of a twisted murder scheme. “Grapplin’,” which first appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, deals with the kind of missing person case that can end in only one of two ways, closure or heartbreak. In the second short, “Nightscape,” listeners discover how, indeed, one thing just leads to another. (This story was first published in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine as “The Winning Ticket.”) The final work, “Revenant,” is another original novella and entangles Nameless in a weird crime with fearful occult overtones.

    The Tragedy of Errors is the lengthy and detailed plot outline for the final but never published Ellery Queen novel, containing all the hallmarks of the greatest Queen mysteries—the dying message, the succession of false solutions before the astonishing truth is revealed, and scrupulous fair play to the listener. And the theme is one that Queen had been developing for many years: the manipulation of events in a world going mad by people who aspire to the power of gods. The Tragedy of Errors also contains the six hitherto uncollected Ellery Queen short stories—“Terror Town,” “Uncle from Australia,” “The Three Students,” “The Odd Man,” “The Honest Swindler,” “The Reindeer Clue,” and “Wedding Anniversary.”

    Presenting Edgar Award–winning editor Otto Penzler’s latest anthology, The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories, the largest collection of Sherlockian tales ever assembled Arguably no other character in history has been so enduringly popular as Sherlock Holmes. From his first appearance, in Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1887 novella A Study in Scarlet, readers have loved reading about him—and writers have loved writing about him. Here, Otto Penzler collects eighty-three wonderful stories about Holmes and Dr. John Watson, the majority of which will be new to readers. Among these pages are tales by acclaimed Sherlockians Leslie S. Klinger, Laurie R. King, Lyndsay Faye, and Daniel Stashower; pastiches by literary luminaries both classic (Kenneth Millar, P. G. Wodehouse, Dorothy B. Hughes) and current (Anne Perry, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman); and parodies by Conan Doyle’s contemporaries James M. Barrie, O. Henry, and August Derleth.

    There is no detective like Ian Rankin’s Detective Inspector John Rebus, a man the New Yorker calls “the ideal sleuth.” Brilliant, irascible, and frequently frustrating to both his friends and his long-suffering bosses, John Rebus has made the dark places of Edinburgh his home for over two decades. The Beat Goes On collects all of Ian Rankin’s Rebus short stories for the first time, including two never-before-published tales written specifically for this collection. From his beginnings as a young detective constable in “Dead and Buried” right up to his dramatic—but not quite final—retirement in “The Very Last Drop,” Rebus shines in these stories, confirming his status as one of crime fiction’s most compelling, brilliant, and unforgettable characters. In these gripping, fast-paced tales, the legendary Scottish detective investigates the sinister cases that are his specialty, including a gruesome student death, the brutal murder of a woman at the crux of a love triangle, an audacious jewel heist, suspicious happenings at a nursing home, and an ominous email that brings a family’s darkest secrets to light. The Beat Goes On is the ultimate Ian Rankin treasure trove—a must-have book for crime fiction aficionados and a superb introduction for anyone looking to experience John Rebus—and the dark, twist-filled crimes he investigates—for the first time.
