This extraordinary collection is international in scope and emphasizes the most exciting styles and voices in each genre, rather than taking a typical decade-by-decade approach. As a result A New Omnibus of Crime is full of a whole range of engaging, page-turning, and spine tingling selections from the past eight decades.
