Rebels with a Cause!

Nearly 100 years ago, The Reverend Monsignor Ronald Knox of the famed Detection Club developed ten rules—a Decalogue he called them—that he felt were “necessary to the full enjoyment of a detective story.” Fairness with readers seemed an author’s highest calling, and—lo!—“the faculty for writing a good mystery story is rare."
Writers (those heretics!) regularly bristle at a challenge, and being told that a literary twist is forbidden makes their fingers twitch at the keyboard.
This anthology contains fourteen of today's outstanding English and American short story authors, trying their best to break one—or more!—of the good monsignor's rules. Twins, supernatural events, and sleuths not sharing their clues are all in here—transgressions in all directions. 

(Father, forgive us, for we have sinned.)
