Charles Brockden finds a bookshop that instantly piques his desire. He must call it his own; he must add it to his already-extensive collection of bookstores. But surely the owner of such a fine shop wouldn't easily part with it?

Brockden forms a plan to acquire the shop in such a way that no one would ever suspect foul play: untraceable murder. And he knows he will be successful – because this is not the first time he has done it.

A DEATH SENTENCE STORY: original shorts about deadly books from the world's best crime writers.

Joyce Carol Oates is the winner of a host of prizes, including the National Book Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. She has written more than 70 books, and is Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University.
