In the pages of his novels, Charles Dickens railed
against injustice in all its forms—the miserliness of
Ebenezer Scrooge, the indifference of the aristocracy, the
cruelty of Fagin. He captured the bitter unfairness of the
class system and the violence that erupted between rich and
poor. Now, today's masters of mystery "decrease the surplus
population" with these new stories inspired by Dickens and
his immortal classics...
Three spirits visit a modern-day Scrooge to save his
soul—and solve a murder—in Carole Nelson
Douglas' "The Holly and the Ivy"...Dickens himself
teams up with fellow novelist Wilkie Collins to investigate
a grisly death in Peter Tremayne's "The Passing
Shadow"...Samuel Pickwick poses as a sentry over a grave
in "Mr. Pickwick and the Body Snatchers" by Bill
Crider...Agatha Award-winner Marcia Talley offers an
alternate ending to Great Expectations in "Miss Havisham
Regrets"...Brendan DuBois unleashes "Fagin's
Revenge" by revealing the secrets within the pages of the
original manuscript of Oliver Twist...New York Times
bestselling author Anne Perry presents "A Tale of
One City" in which our hero Sydney Carton must save an
innocent woman from the guillotine...and Lillian Stewart
Carl, P.N. Elrod, Martin Edwards, Carolyn Wheat, and
Gillian Linscott all pay homage to the author who
spoke to the masses about the human quest for justice—with
an imaginative collection of tales that ask, "Who the
Dickens done it?"
