Do you like to be agitated? Shocked? Jarred? Do you like your reading disquieting, turbulent, icy? Do you like it to shake you up? To pack a wallop? To fill you with fear and trembling? This fifth anthology in the new series of stories from Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine—with each of the first eighteen years of the magazine (1956-1973) represented by at least one story—provides the kind of chill-causing excitement you've come to expect from the Master of Suspense.

Here are stories from Patricia Highsmith (who wrote Strangers on a Train), Robert Bloch (who wrote Psycho), and 27 others whose spine-tingling fiction has earned them the warm support of Alfred Hitchcock fans for years.
