Music of the Night is a new anthology of original short stories contributed by Crime Writers' Association (CWA) members and edited by Martin Edwards, with music as the connecting theme. The aim, as always, is to produce a book which is representative both of the genre and the membership of the world’s premier crime writing association.


The CWA has published anthologies of members’ stories in most years since 1956, with Martin Edwards as editor for over 25 years, during which time the anthologies have yielded many award-winning and nominated stories by writers such as Ian Rankin, Reginald Hill, Lawrence Block, and Edward D. Hoch. Stories by long-standing authors and stellar names sit alongside contributions from relative newcomers, authors from overseas, and members whose work haven’t appeared in a CWA anthology before.

'For more than sixty years, the CWA has done more for British crime writing than any other organisation.' - Andrew Taylor, award-winning author of The American Boy and recipient of the 2009 CWA Diamond Dagger

"A superb collection in a variety of styles which just shows how many different stories some of crime writing’s finest can produce from the simple theme of music and murder. Highly recommended." - - PromotingCrime
