Publisher's Summary

The greatest story ever told; the rise and fall of civilizations, empires, kings, despots, prophets and disciples; tales of love, betrayal, revenge, war, and disaster, the most fundamental and eternal myths and fables of Judeo-Christian society; the end of the world - the Bible has all of these. And now acclaimed mystery author Anne Perry has culled together an extraordinary list of writers - from Sharyn McCrumb, Carole Nelson Douglas, Robert Barnard, Marcia Talley, Susan Moody and Peter Lovesey to Sharan Newman, Nancy Pickard, Reginald Hill, Gillian Linscott, Simon Brett, and Peter Robinson - to contribute all new mystery and crime stories inspired by and based on these most ancient of biblical tales.

From Sampson and Delilah to David and Goliath; from Mount Sinai to the Last Supper, Thou Shalt Not Kill explores the stories of the bible as chilling expressions of the most basic instincts found in the "Good Book". With 15 unique and inspired twists on the traditional mystery story, Thou Shalt Not Kill is an inimitable edition to any library.

Old (Testament) School Murder Mysteries

I am a total old-school Mystery freak, and when I heard Anne Perry had a collection of fantastic whodunits based on stories from the old testament, I jumped on it.

One thing you can say for the Bible is it is an age-old fount of the lurid mystery going back to the first recorded murder.

Here we have stories from first-rate writers such as Simon Brett, Sharyn McCrumb, Peter Robinson, Nancy Pickard, and Anne Perry herself. They’re full of arch twists on biblical stories, Moses in Slavery-era America, John the Baptist in the mob, and always, always entertaining.

Tavia Gilbert, Eric Pollins, and Aaron Abano keep the suspense tight--even when you’ve already heard the story—long ago in Sunday school.
