[from the back cover] "Cartier Diamond Dagger Award winner Julian Symons has long been acknowledged as the doyen of British crime writers. Here he turns the spotlight on the evil side of human nature in a compelling anthology of murder and suspense. The Man Who Hated Television contains short stories written specially for this collection as well as classics like Et In Acadia Ego, each demonstrating the incisive storytelling for which this author was renowned."
Hugh Bennett, young reporter on a local paper, witnessed a terrible crime - a group of boys stabbed a man to death on Guy Fawkes' night, right in front of the fire on the village green. But as Bennett attempts to write the story for his paper, doubts begin to creep in about what he had actually seen, and he finds himself facing an immense moral dilemma. On first publication, The 'Progress of a Crime' was seen as setting new standards in crime fiction.<P><P> Edgar Allan Poe Award Winner
