[nice tight clean book, one tiny dent in bottom edge of each cover, no other significant wear; jacket shows just a trace of wrinkling at top and bottom edges of front panel]. The author's first collection of short stories, a dozen tales of murder: "There are simple murders and ingenious murders; successful and unsuccessful murders; premeditated and impulsive murders; murders triggered by hatred and murders for gain; murder to end blackmail and murder as blackmail; crazed murderers, murderers caught in their own trap, murderers who get away with it. There's even murder as a practical joke. Finally, as a bonus to Simon Brett fans, there's a Charles Paris story, in which his familiar actor-detective copes very cleverly with the threats to the life of a faded star."
