Reviews

Fans of classic British crime fiction will appreciate this anthology, and the vivid locations should lure readers who enjoy atmospheric reads.

--Library Journal

Readers who like this sort of thing will find every single story, even if it isn't outstanding, well worth their time. The field is so rich, in fact, that veteran editor Edwards (Miraculous Mysteries, 2017, etc.) can't have had much trouble in plucking these plums and near-plums - a feast for the equally nostalgic.

--Kirkus Reviews

Detection Club president Edwards (Crimson Snow) puts his expertise to good use in this superb reprint anthology of 14 short stories by British writers set in continental Europe....Those unfamiliar with the bygone age of crime fiction celebrated in this volume will find this the perfect introduction. (starred review)
