Item description for The Couple Next Door: Collected Short Mysteries (Lost Classics) by Margaret Millar...

A MASTER OF SUSPENSE Margaret Millar (1915-1994) was an internationally popular author whose well-crafted and sharply-written books pioneered the subgenre of psychological suspense. In a nearly 50-year writing career -- which began in her native Canada and continued in Southern California -- she earned the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar and Grand Master Awards, and the enthusiasm of such discriminating readers as Agatha Christie, Raymond Chandler, W.H. Auden and Truman Capote.

Best-known for her novels, Margaret Millar also wrote a handful of short stories, tales much admired by peers (including her husband Kenneth Millar, who used the pseudonym Ross Macdonald) but never collected in book form. Now Macdonald's biographer Tom Nolan has gathered and introduced those stories in this volume, which includes two all-but-unknown novellas from the 1940s. Here are half-a-dozen exhibits in evidence of the case made by English author and critic H.R.F. Keating, who judged: "No woman in twentieth-century American mystery writing is more important than Margaret Millar."

The Couple Next Door is the 15th in the Crippen & Landru "Lost Classics" series. The cover design is by Deborah Miller.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Couple Next Door: Collected Short Mysteries (Lost Classics)?

Unforgettable  Dec 30, 2006
..These stories will stay in your mind long after you've put away this book. Read it
A must-read for any true mystery fan  Aug 27, 2005
This book is a welcome addition to Crippen & Landru's noteworthy "Lost Classics" series, and I enjoyed reading every page. When it came to telling a good tale replete with intriguing characters, Margaret Millar, wife of noted mystery writer Kenneth Millar (Ross Macdonald), certainly could hold her own not only with her husband, but also with Agatha Christie, Raymond Chandler, and the best of them. These intelligently written short stories and novellas, finally now collected in book form and expertly tied together by editor and Ross Macdonald biographer Tom Nolan, gripped me from the start and held me captive. I couldn't put it down and read the book in one night!
