Recenzii

'For more than sixty years, the CWA has done more for British crime writing than any other organisation.'
"A book that should provide hours of entertainment and discovery for fans of mysteries and especially those with British roots and overtones."
"There is something for everyone within this anthology with the stories spanning a variety of time periods and types of crime."
“Excellently put together, and overall an enjoyable reader that shows many different styles which keeps the genre well and truly alive.”
“[...] if you like “golden age” mysteries, with puzzles to figure out, you’ll enjoy this book. I certainly did!”
