Ten Thousand Blunt Instruments and Other Mysteries

Ten Thousand Blunt Instruments and Other Mysteries
Philip Wylie (1902-1971) was a prolific writer whose stories were, in the words of editor Bill Pronzini, "controversial, provocative, iconoclastic" and unafraid to question cultural sensibilities and critique American mores. As a result, his detective fiction was among the most ingenious and innovative of his generation. Included in this collection are six of his best mysteries where, in order to discover the solution, you will be forced to see through the mayhem of a hurricane in the Florida Keys, find something unnatural in a death by heart attack, join an Olympic swimmer as he matches wits with a ruthless murderer, and find which weapon (out of ten thousand!) was used to bludgeon someone to death in the New York Museum of Natural History. Edited and with an introduction by Bill Pronzini. Ten Thousand Blunt Instruments is the 29th in Crippen & Landru's "Lost Classics" series - new collections by great writers of traditional mysteries.
