Murderous Schemes an anthology of classic detective storiesedited and with an introduction by Donald WestlakeI enjoyed Whodunit enough that when I happened across this anthology the next time I was browsing the adult mystery collection I decided to give it a tryA brief introduction introduces the book and its organization The collection is organized into eight categories of four stories each Each category is introduced by a brief 1 2 page commentary on that type of detective story it s origins and famous authors and ends with a brief commentary on the stories selected to represent it Each story is preceded by an ever briefer no than 1 page biography on the authorThe introductions and biographies added a lot to my enjoyment of the stories and to my knowledge of the mystery genre I also got to enjoy an encore from a few authors that I came across for the first time in WhodunitI must confess that my preferred categories made up the first half of the book the locked room only one among you the caper the armchair detective and I confess Most of the category names are pretty self explanatory so I won t bore you with descriptionsThe second half of the book contained edgier categories some bordering on horror come into my parlor hoist on their own petards and over the edge The former and latter of those three I considered skipping altogether but in the end I read all the stories but oneA solid pick for mystery lovers and the introductions make it easy to skip any story you think you d rather not read while providing a window to expand your detective horizons
