Summary (From the publisher):

Short mystery fiction has furnished a rich source of material for the performing arts. In this, Walker's second collection of stories from which popular television, stage, screen and radio mysteries were adapted, editor Eleanor Sullivan has again brought together top-notch selections from Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.

Many of the stories in this volume are classics readers will recognize from adaptations in more than one medium. In addition to being probably the most repeated play in the history of radio, Sorry, Wrong Number has been a film, a television play, and a chilling one-act stage play.
