Mystery with armchair travel: Continental Crimes edited by Martin Edwards

Martin Edwards has edited and written the introductions to a number of short story collections published by Poisoned Pen Press. Often these titles look back to the “golden age” of mystery fiction.

This title includes fifteen tales in all. Some of the authors whose works are included are Arthur Conan Doyle, G.K. Chesterton, Agatha Christie, Josephine Bell and Michael Gilbert. Readers may recognize that these authors are British and that this book is titled Continental Crimes. Yes, it is true that all of these authors set stories in other parts of Europe.

Sometimes readers want to immerse themselves in long novels. There are other times when a short story is just right. For those times, this is a welcome collection.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
