As chosen by Jon
L. Breen in.The Fine Art of Murder
I'm not sure if The Fine Art of Murder (1993) really is "The Mystery Reader's Indispensable Companion," but this nifty collection of essays and lists, both original and reprinteded, collected from various sources, including Mystery Scene, and edited by Ed Gorman, Martin H. Greenberg, Larry Segriff and Jon L. Breen, sure is a lot of fun. It won the Anthony award for Best Critical Work at Bouchercon.
