This collection of stories has been put together and edited by Martin Edwards. In addition to writing his own novels, Mr. Edwards has contributed to a number of collections for Poisoned Pen Press and the British Library. Among these are The Christmas Card Crime and Other Stories; Vintage Crime; and Blood on the Tracks.
This new book will make a perfect gift for a fan of classic mystery stories and their authors. Following a short introduction, readers will find a dozen holiday themed stories. Some of the authors included are Ngaio Marsh, John Dickson Carr, Margery Allingham and Cyril Hare. Each tale begins with a short biographical section on the author.
The nice thing about a story collection is that readers can complete an enjoyable short story relatively quickly and add pleasure to their day. Of course, there will be some who will want to read all of these stories right in a row!
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
