by Isaac Asimov

A haunting acount of a young woman's psychic powers and a mystery more bizarre than the supernatural... a knowledge of Astrology provides the key to a particularly grisly murder... the key to a young man's happiness lies in the solution to a bafling cryptogram...

The thirty-one mysterious and riddling tales in this collection represent Isaac Asimov's own favourite stories from his classic Union Club and Black Widower series, as lively introduction and commentaries by the master himself makes this an indispensable compendium of Asimov's mysteries
