Who better to reminisce about the greatest mysteries ever written than some of the greatest mystery writers who have ever put pen to paper? That's the idea behind the new anthology Books to Die For, in which popular contemporary mystery novelists opine on their favorite works and writers in the genre.

Michael Connelly writes about The Little Sister, Joseph Wambaugh remembers crossing paths with Truman Capote, and Linwood Barclay tells of how Ross MacDonald mentored him as a younger writer. Irish mystery writer John Connolly, who edited the compilation with countryman Declan Burke, talks to Mike Cuthbert about the greatest mysteries of all time.
