After reading the very thorough September 27 review of this on the crossexaminingcrime blog HERE, I knew I had to buy this book. I did, and what a treasure it is. I strongly recommend you follow the link and read that review.
I couldn’t do any better, and I’m pretty sure if you have any interest in mystery fiction and it’s publishing history, you’ll love both the review and the book for both the history of each decade and for the covers. This book is a must have.
