(IBList user synopsis):
Fourteen illustrious members of the Crime Writers of Canada explore what happens when people stand at the brink. In some cases, the view is shocking or terrifying. In other cases it's whimsical. But when the story is told by award winning writers like Eric Wright, Robert J. Sawyer and Lawrence Block, it's always captivating.
In "The Altdorf Syndrome," a travelling salesman looks into the abyss to solve a baffling puzzle or lose his life. In "You See But do Not Observe," Sherlock Holmes examines one of the greatest mysteries of the universe.
In "Generation Y," doctors study a murderer's soul and in "Keller's Therapy," a hired killer peers deep into himself.
