Maxim Jakubowski told me that this was the first evenly balanced anthology of American and British crime writers ever. This was the only hard-cover edition.
A top-class collection with some usual names such as Larry Beinhart (author the American political satire Wag the Dog), Liza Cody (author of the Anna Lee PI series) to her American counterpart Sara Paretsky (author of the V I Warshawski books), and sister in crime J A Jance (author of two best-selling series: the J.P. Beaumont Mysteries and the Joanna Brady Mysteries). Plenty of treasure here. No Alibi was one of the first anthologies issued by the Scorpion Press; it was published in 1995.
