Editorial Reviews

Review

Martin Edwards, who is, among other things, the president of England's prestigious Detection Club, has been kept quite busy of late collecting short stories by classic authors and putting them together into anthologies. As I am particularly fond of stories in the "impossible crimes" sub-genre, I am most grateful for this latest anthology which focuses its attention entirely upon impossibilities. Edwards has chosen from a good mix of authors - some quite famous, some who have lapsed into obscurity. All have turned out wonderfully tricky stories about impossible crimes, and the solutions, in general, are quite novel.

(Les Blatt Classic Mysteries)

I am a avid crime fiction fan. Especially ones from the Golden Era... I absolutely loved every word, every mystery. every twist and turn.

(Sarah Marsden NetGalley)

The stories are described as "the crème de la crème" of Impossible crimes and locked room mysteries... and the introduction by Martin Edwards are really interesting and add a great deal to the book. I really recommend this to anyone who enjoys the older style of writing.

(Leyla Johnson GoodReads)

Another great collection of short stories by British writers ranging in date from Conan Doyle to Margery Allingham. It pleased me that the stories varied in length and difficulty of solution. Very highly recommended for all fans of classic British detection.

(Eric Bruce GoodReads)
