Dover Books Reprints of Classic Mysteries

Back to the Dover Books Introduction

Dover books has over the years and under various series imprints reprinted many classic mysteries. Following is a partial listing.
Author names link to a wikipedia entry when available, unless I know of another link that is more informative. Biblio and Amazon links are to searches by isbn when the book is not pre-isbn. Addall links are to a search by author, title and key word, with "dover" begin the keyword.

Allen, Grant An African Millionaire: Episodes in the Life of the Illustrious Colonel Clay 336pp 0486239926. 1980. Twelve superb, entertaining tales of "gentleman crook" who repeatedly swindles wealthy diamond magnate.1

Anderson, Frederick Irving The Book of Murder 0486256308. 1987. 79657-4. 2015.
One of my personal favorites. Unlike most of the dover mystery reprints done in the seventies and eighties this reprint, originally published in 1930, is very American. Check the author link above for a very good article on Anderson by Mike Grost. Others must like it as well because Dover has recently reissued it with a new cover.
