Written in the late 1940s. Classic noir mystery.

If you're looking for dark, gritty crime stories from a time long before cell phones and the internet, then make sure you grab this collection. I love how unique each author's style is, but each story is engaging and interesting in its own right. There's a bit of mystery and plenty of tension within the stories, and you'll find it hard to stop reading each novel once you start. If you're a fan of older fiction and mystery thrillers, then you'll want to add this to your TBR pile.

Crime Novels: Five Classic Thrillers 1961-1964 is a wonderful snapshot of how the genre was evolving during this time frame. The novels are classics and having them together in one volume takes the reader back to the early 60s.

Collections like this I generally rate as a whole based on their purpose rather than, for instance, a collection of stories recently written that are presented to the world for the first time. In other words, while I think about how good they are I am more concerned with how representative they are of the time period. And on that note, I think this volume succeeds very well.

The only one of these I had not read previously was The Score by Richard Stark (Donald Westlake), and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I was compelled, after rereading Dead Calm by Charles Williams, to go and rewatch the film. And the one that reverberated the most for me was The Expendable Man by Dorothy B Hughes, it speaks to our current times just as directly as it spoke to those times.

Some may find these novels "dated." I won't say I disagree, but any work of fiction that utilizes the society contemporary to the writing as an element in the story is going to be, by definition, dated. That is neither a positive nor a negative, to treat it as either is pointless beyond simply being a personal reason to not like it. In fact, in a collection that seeks to highlight how a genre was evolving during a time period, datedness is a positive attribute.

I would recommend this collection to any readers of crime fiction who enjoy good storytelling, these novels can each stand as an excellent example of crime fiction. For those who like to know how their favorite genre has developed over the years, this will give you a glimpse at the time when it was swinging from hardboiled private detectives to more psychologically, and sociologically, driven narratives.

Reviewed from a copy made available by the publisher via NetGalley.

An enjoyable little murder mystery. I would read more of this series, if I could get them.
