The best mysteries have one thing in common: a memorable perpetrator. These rogues and villains haunt our imaginations, and often have more in common with their heroic counterparts than we might expect. Following such anthologies as The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories and The Big Book of Jack the Ripper, Edgar Award winner Otto Penzler gathers 72 stories with antiheroes from Maurice Leblanc's Arsène Lupin and Sax Rohmer's Dr. Fu Manchu to contemporary delinquents like Lawrence Block's Ehrengraf and Donald Westlake's Dortmunder, amid tales by Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Washington Irving, Jack London, H.G. Wells, Sinclair Lewis, O. Henry, Edgar Wallace, Leslie Charteris, Erle Stanley Gardner, Edward D. Hoch, Max Allan Collins, and Loren D. Estleman.
