In the mood for a short story? The Measure of Malice: Scientific Detection Stories A British Library Crime Classic by Martin Edwards The Measure of Malice: Scientific Detection Stories A British Library Crime Classic by Martin Edwards

The Poisoned Pen Press has published a number of excellent mystery anthologies, of which this is one. This collection includes stories about cases that were investigated and solved using science and technology, as it existed when each story was written.
A knowledgeable introduction is followed by stories from writers who are both well and lesser known. Some of the authors represented are Conan Doyle, Dorothy L Sayers and Freeman Wills Crofts. There are fourteen stories in all.
If you find that you sometimes have trouble concentrating on a novel, this book provides a nice alternative with its stories. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
