A collection: Murder by the Book

by Martin Edwards

Martin Edwards and Poisoned Pen Press offer readers so many delightful short story anthologies. This title is one of my favorites because it includes the words “books” and “murder” in the same space.

Within these pages are stories by authors from the Golden Age. I was especially excited to spend time with Nigel Strangeways and Roderick Alleyn as I have read the novels in which they feature. Some of the other authors found in these pages include Christianna Brand, Julia Symons and E.G. Trent.

The book opens with a helpful introduction. Following that, read in order or in whatever order you like. Either way, bibliophiles will while away some time in escapist fun.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Poisoned Pen Press 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!
