Why is there: Blood on the Tracks

British Library Crime Classics

Those who enjoy vintage crime and short stories are sure to enjoy this collection that has been edited by Martin Edwards. As is true of his other compilations, Edwards has chosen wisely and offers readers a variety of authors who have set their stories on trains.

Here are tales that are of the Locked Room genre in that most iconic of settings, a train making its way to a destination. There are some well-known authors here as, for example, Conan Doyle and Dorothy Sayers. There are other authors with whom I was not acquainted. Still, I know them better after traveling with them through this volume.

I would also like to comment on this book’s cover. The artwork is very appealing and immediately invites the reader to use their imagination and travel on trains fr0m years past.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. 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!
