AZ Murder Goes... Artful

AZ Murder Goes... Artful

(2002)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
Raymond Chandler called it The Simple Art of Murder, a misleading title. It never has been simple to write mysteries. But it is an art, and often the crimes investigated are rooted in the worlds of art, architecture, and antiquities.

Where there is creativity, there is passion. Where there is a legacy, there is rivalry. Where there are masterpieces or valuables, there is big money. And where there is big money, there's greed, there's envy, there's scandal... It's murder. Where better to place a mystery?

Follow the money! the history! the story! Authors Nevada Barr, Roy Berkeley, Philip R Craig, Aaron Elkins, Nicholas Kilmer, Sharyn McCrumb, Keith Miles, and Elizabeth Peters do just that into worlds given their own unique spin: uncharted treasures of our national parks; highlights of a spy's London; the timeless world of an island paradise; masterpieces of Europe's great museums; the dark world of art dealers; the glories of Celtic homelands and Appalachian mountains; the Arizona desert transformed by the skills of Frank Lloyd Wright; ancient Egyptian tombs explored by an archaeologist who takes to crime....Bookseller Barbara Peters adds her memoirs of a trip to modern China.

And a bonus! A splendid bibliography of "artful" murders compiled by Yale University librarian [ret.] Louis Silverstein.
