Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder

"The detective story is a game between two players, the author...and the reader."--Ronald Knox

From the squash court to the golf links, the football pitch to the swimming pool and the race course to the cricket square, no court, grounds, stadium or stand is safe from skullduggery. Entering the arena where sport clashes with crime, this spirited medley of short stories showcases the greatest deadly plays and criminal gambits of the mystery genre.

With introductions by Editor Martin Edwards and stories by some of the finest writers in the field--including Celia Fremlin, Michael Gilbert, Gladys Mitchell, and Leo Bruce--this new anthology offers a ringside view of the darker side of sports and proves that crime, naturally, is a game for all seasons.
