"Over the years, Constance Leidl and Charlie Meiklejohn have investigated a wide variety of murder and arson cases." "This collection assembles for the first time the shorter cases of the detecting duo, including: "With Thimbles, with Forks, and Hope," their first case ever; the harrowing account of an arsonist out for revenge, "Torch Song," which has never been published before; and "All for One," also published first in this volume - a bittersweet tale of murderous family relations." "Together with "Sister Alice" and "The Gorgon Field," these stories comprise a full house of fantastic fiction."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
