Footprints, a smoking revolver, broken glass . . . Whodunit? Get to the bottom of things with Max Allan Collins, who puts the enigmatic, endlessly fascinating world of the mystery genre under the magnifying glass in "The History of Mystery." Collins tracks the modern detective story from its birth in Allan Pinkerton's Memoirs to its fullest flowering in the fiction of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Ross MacDonald. En route, Collins explores the rich narrative and visual history of detective comics and the legacy of mystery in radio, television, and film noir. Arguably the most comprehensive survey ever published, "The History of Mystery" is sure to please the most discriminating sleuth.
