The Casebook of Sidney Zoom by Erle Stanley GardnerWorking with the agents for the estate of Erle Stanley Gardner, Bill Pronzini will edit and Crippen & Landru will publish collections of never previously reprinted stories from pulps, slicks and digests by the great creator of Perry Mason.

Previously published is The Danger Zone and Other Stories, the 13th in the Crippen & Landru Lost Classics series and the first of the series of Erle Stanley Gardner collections.

A Garden of Vipers by Jack KerleyWhen a young reporter is found murdered, Mobile detectives Carson Ryder and Harry Nautilus wonder if there may be more to this slaying than a standard homicide in A Garden of Vipers, the third mystery in this series by Jack Kerley. Simultaneously, the detectives are drawn into the dealings of the Kincannon family, "picture-perfect" socialites and philanthropists with ties to Ryder's partner . . . and to his journalist girlfriend. When Ryder is abducted by bizarre and unknown forces, he's given up for dead by all but those closest to him. Digging fast as Ryder's time disappears, they discover a web of connections between the murdered reporter, the dealings of an elusive bearded man, and the charitable enterprises of the Kincannons. The question quickly becomes: What will the perfect family do to protect an image of perfection? Publishers Weekly states that "Kerley has a nice feel for the Gulf area, and his detectives are a couple of aces sharing competence, bravery and camaraderie."
