This was a wonderful book with stories from some of Britain s most talented Mystery writers of the past I have seen movies or programs developed from the works of these authors but this was my first real reading My favorites were Agatha Christie, A.E.W Mason and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle I found there books very easy to read and exciting I had a few problems with the works of Sak Rohner and Kate Chopin The Tales of Chinatown by Sak Rohner were very hard for me to get into although I do remember seeing old movies that were made from his books This is a great set to introduce the reader to the greats Really An English anthology w too many like house stories Hah and double gag My fault I guess Christie and Doyle of course but the others I ll have to read the book descriptionsthoroughly next time.
