Published in 1982, Tantalizing Locked Room Mysteries features 12 short stories of the genre including Edgar Allan . Compiled by Douglas Greene and Robert Adey, Death Locked in is an anthology of locked-room mysteries.

Published in 1982, Tantalizing Locked Room Mysteries features 12 short stories of the genre including Edgar Allan Poe's Murders in the Rue Morgue, Jacques Futrelle's Problem of Cell 13, and many more established classics. Mixed in are a selection of lesser known works, but mystery fans will recognise many of the author names. Featuring stories written across the centuries, the book provides some insight as to the origins of the genre, development during the "golden age of detective fiction", and a few more recent examples.

When a locked-room mystery doesn't work the solution makes you groan and the book gets hurled across the room. In The Murders in the Rue Morgue an elderly Frenchwoman is killed in a locked room on the fourth floor. The solution – spoiler alert – is that the murder was done by a tame orang-utan who climbed in through the open window with a straight razor. The golden age of the locked-room mystery in Anglo-American detective fiction has largely passed, but in France Paul Halter has been churning out original impossible murder novels since the mid-1980s and in Japan the great Soji Shimada virtually invented the "logic problem" sub-genre which is still extremely popular.

This anthology contains 24 "stories," 22 of which are narrative fiction ("The First Locked Room" is a reconstruction of a true crime by Lillian de la Torre, and "The Adventure of the Man Who Could Double the Size of Diamonds" is a radio play by Ellery Queen). A few of its stories have frequently been reprinted elsewhere (Wilkie Collins's "A Terribly Strange Bed," G. K. Chesterton's "The Invisible Man," and Clayton Rawson's "Off the Face of the Earth"), but most of them will be new to most readers.
