Murder and Obsession, (Editor), Otto Penzler
1 (Editor), Otto Penzler Murder and Obsession
Orion 2000 0752832042 / 9780752832043 First UK edition-first printing Hardcover Fine Fine Book 
Fine condition.Orion,2000.First UK edition-first printing of this edition.Purple hardback(silver lettering to the spine) with Dj(two small creases,nicks and scratch on the Dj cover),both in fine condition.Nice and clean pages as new with two pencil marks impressions on the edge of the first blank page of the book,small ink mark and a nick on the outer edge of the pages.Nice and clean book.407pp.Price un-clipped.Product Description: The third entry in Otto Penzler's themed series of new stories focuses on obsession: a topic so broad that almost any crime story can be shoehorned in from Elmore Leonard's arson investigation to Shel Silverstein's droll sex offender anecdote. In a very strong line-up, Joyce Carol Oates' vampire, Edna Buchanan's shoe fetishist, James Hall's voyeur, Elizabeth George's scheming modern champion of Richard III, and Ed McBain's city dweller driven barking mad by a yappy Maltese, are up there with the best. Including a pair of wild cards from regional specialists Dennis Lehane (who leaves Boston to holiday among some memorable southern lowlifes) and Michael Malone whose path crosses Lehane's as he travels north for a closer look at homicide in New York, and with supporting performances by Kent Anderson, James Crumley, Anne Perry and Amanda Cross, this terrific volume explores the depths of obsession - for the height of bone-chilling diversion. n nAbout the Author nOtto Penzler is the owner of The Mysterious Bookshops in New York and Los Angeles. An authority on crime fiction, he is the founder of The Mysterious Press and Otto Penzler Books. He received an Edgar Award for the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MYSTERY AND DETECTION and was honoured by the Mystery Writers of America in 1994 with the Ellery Queen Award for his contributions in the publishing field. He lives in New York.
