Connoisseurs of fictional murder and intrigue will rejoice in Shooting Script and Other Mysteries by William Link and Richard Levinson. Spanning the years 1954 to 1966, this collection shows the young writers exploring terrain that would later make them world famous as co-creators of a certain raincoat-clad LAPD detective and a mystery novelist from Cabot Cove, Maine.

These compelling stories range from a small town in Colorado to a military base in Germany; from the hot, flat roads of Nevada to the steel-and-glass canyons of New York City. Never before collected in one volume, they share a common denominator: suspense of the most delicious variety.

William Link (1933-2020) and Richard Levinson (1934-87) were trailblazing writers and producers who revolutionized network television. Their decades of accomplishment include the groundbreaking made-for-television movies My Sweet Charlie, That Certain Summer, The Execution of Private Slovik, The Execution of Private Slovik, The Gun, Terrorist on Trial: The United States vs. Salim Ajami and Crisis at Central High; a trio of Edgar Award-winning TV mysteries, Death by Natural Causes, Rehearsal for Murder, and Guilty Conscience; and classic series such as Columbo, Ellery Queen, and Murder, She Wrote (with Peter S. Fischer).

Shooting Script is edited by Edgar Award-winning playwright Joseph Goodrich and features a foreword by Tom Straw, author of the New York Times best-selling Richard Castle novels.

“The mystery world owes a great deal to Link and Levinson for the entertainment and inspiration their work provides,” says Goodrich. “These cunning tales of fate and fatality are simply irresistible.”
