The Perfect Murder [HarperCollins, hardcover, 1991]

This is the full and detailed view of The Perfect Murder, a "literary experiment" in which Tony Hillerman participated. The book's editor, Jack Hitt, asked five well-known mystery authors to contribute advice for a hypothetical "perfect murder" scenario. Published in 1991 by HarperCollins, the book also contains contributions by Lawrence Block, Sarah Caudwell, Peter Lovesey, and Donald E. Westlake, in addition to Tony Hillerman.
