about

Ideal for students of German as well as crime story enthusiasts, this dual-language edition contains ten short stories. Selections range from eighteenth- and nineteenth-century classics by Friedrich Schiller ("Der Verbrecher aus verlorener Ehre"/"The Criminal of Lost Honor") and Willibald Alexis ("Das Gelöbnis der drei Diebe"/"The Pledge of the Three Thieves") to tales by such popular contemporary authors as Iris Klockmann ("Der Kuss des Todes"/"The Kiss of Death") and Karin Holz ("Der letzte Stich"/"The Last Trick").
Appropriate for intermediate-level students of German, this volume is equally suited to classroom use and independent study. New English translations appear on pages facing the original German text. The editor provides an overview of German crime fiction in addition to concise introductions to each story.
