Book Description

Sept. 1 1997 Cwa
Following on from the first CWA anthology, Perfectly Criminal, whose story Herbert in Motion by Ian Rankin won the 1996 CWA Short Story Dagger, this thrilling collection focuses on the elusive 'why?' behind the crime. This theme has inspired many contributions original to the anthology from such distinguished names as:

Lawrence Block

Reginald Hill

Edward D Hoch

Peter Lovesey

Ruth Rendell

Margaret Yorke

And many more...

To make the collection even more unique, each contributor will introduce their story to the reader -- letting you into the secret of 'why' they chose to write it.
