More Than 50+ Crime Story

This collection contains eight murder stories written by some of the finest British and American mystery writers of the twentieth century.

Many, like Colin Dexter and Patricia Highsmith, are best known for their full-length works while others, like Jack Ritchie, specialize in the short story.

In some of these stories, like Sara Paretsky’s ‘At the Old Swimming Hole’, we follow the action through the eyes of the person who is trying to solve the crime.

Other stories are told from the point of view of the criminal; as readers of Patricia Highsmith’s ‘Woodrow Wilson’s Tie’, we share the murderer’s thoughts as well as his actions.

Story :1 Three is a lucky number

At five o’clock on a September afternoon, Ronald Torbay was making preparations for his third murder. He was being very careful. He realized that murdering people becomes more dangerous if you do it often.

He was in the bathroom of the house that he had recently rented. For a moment he paused to look in the mirror. The face that looked back at him was thin, middle-aged, and pale.

Dark hair, a high forehead, and well-shaped blue eyes. Only the mouth was unusually narrow and quite straight. Even Ronald Torbay did not like his own mouth.

A sound in the kitchen below worried him. Was Edyth coming up to have her bath before he had prepared it for her? No, it was all right: she was going out of the back door.

From the window, he saw her disappearing around the side of the house into the small square garden. It was exactly like all the other gardens in the long street.

He didn’t like her to be alone there. She was a shy person, but now new people had moved into the house next door, and there was a danger of some silly woman making friends with her.

Full Circle Sue Grafton

The accident happened on a Friday afternoon, as I was driving home. The traffic was moving quickly along the Santa Teresa freeway and my own little Volkswagen was running well, although it’s fifteen years old. I was feeling good. I’d just solved a difficult case, and I had a cheque in my handbag for four thousand dollars.

That’s good money, for a female private detective working for herself.

The sun shone down on the freeway out of a cloudless California sky. I was driving in the middle lane. Looking into the driving mirror, I saw a young woman in a small white car coming up behind me in the fast lane. A bright red Porsche was close behind her, and I guessed she wanted to move into the middle lane in front of me to let it pass, so I reduced my speed.

Coming up on my right was a dark blue Toyota. While I was looking in the mirror I heard a loud noise, a bit like a gunshot.

I turned my attention back to the road in front of me. Suddenly the small white car moved back into the fast lane. It seemed to be out of control. It hit the back of the red Porsche, ran into the fence in the centre of the freeway, and then back again into the road in front of me. I put my foot down hard to bring the Volkswagen to a stop. At that moment a green Mercedes suddenly appeared from nowhere, and hit the side of the girl’s car, sending it right off the road. Behind me all the cars were trying to stop – I could hear them crashing into each other.

It was all over in a moment. A cloud of dust from the side of the road showed where the girl’s car had come to rest. It had hit one of the posts of a road sign, and the broken sign was now hanging across her car roof.

I left my car at the side of the road and ran towards the white car, with the man from the blue Toyota close behind me. The girl’s head had gone through the front window. She was unconscious, and her face was covered in blood. I couldn’t open the car door, but the man from the Toyota forced it open and reached inside.
