Our American Mystery Classics series features the very best American whodunnit novels from the Golden Age of the genre (broadly, the decades between the two World Wars), hand-picked by Mysterious Bookshop owner and mystery scholar Otto Penzler.
With big-name authors including John Dickson Carr, Ellery Queen, Mary Roberts Rinehart, Erle Stanley Gardner, and Cornell Woolrich, plus lesser-known gems such as Craig Rice, Dorothy Hitchens, Clayton Rawson and Baynard Kendrick, the line highlights the variety and excellence of the era. New introductions from beloved mystery authors of today add context to the tales and usher them into the 21st century.
