Can you solve: The Edinburgh Mystery and Other Tales of Scottish Crime (edited by Martin Edwards)

Martin Edwards has been editing titles in this series for a while now. He does a most excellent job.

This time, Edwards turns to Scotland with a collection of seventeen stories from the classic mystery fiction tradition. I found many of my favorite authors here including Conan Doyle, G.K. Chesterton, Josephine Tey, and Cyril Hare. I was also introduced to some new authors which added pleasure to my reading experience.

Be sure to read the introduction. It is filled with interesting and helpful context. I also liked the author biographies that prefaced each entry.

This book is just right for when a short story (and not a novel) is called for. 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!
