Editor Hutchings has assembled a collection of 20 stories representing what she considers the finest examples in the genre from the past 100 years of British mystery writing. The volume includes a nicely varied assortment of stories, from the delightful tongue-in-cheek humor of A. A. Milne's offbeat takeoff on the famous Sherlock Holmes stories to Peter Lovesey's take-'em-by-surprise story of a faked death, the dark desperation of Robert Barnard's "Gentleman in the Lake," and a wonderfully clever and funny story about a Bombay serial killer by the inimitable H. R. F. Keating. While collections of American mystery "shorts" are rife, it's rarer to find collections by the Brits. This volume, with its outstanding representation of the most well known and popular British authors from the past century, is well worth adding to every mystery collection. Emily Melton
