A man is forbidden to uncover the secret of the tower in a fairy-tale castle by the Rhine. A headless corpse is found in a secret garden in Paris - belonging to the city's chief of police. And a drowned man is fished from the sea off the Italian Riviera, leaving the carabinieri to wonder why his socialite friends at the Villa Almirante are so unconcerned by his death. These are three of the scenarios in this new collection of vintage crime stories compiled by Martin Edwards. Detective stories from the golden age and beyond have used European settings - cosmopolitan cities, rural idylls and crumbling chateaux - to explore timeless themes of revenge, deception and haunting. Including lesser-known stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, G.K. Chesterton, and J. Jefferson Farjeon - and over a dozen other classic writers - this collection reveals many hidden gems of British crime.

Review:
Contains 14 short stories, by Agatha Christie, Conan Doyle, GK Chesterton and a smattering of the well-chosen but no longer famous. --The Times, July 2017

This toothsome collection of vintage crime stories from the Golden Age is edited by the man most qualified for the task. --Barry Forshaw, Crime Time

The field is so rich ... that veteran editor Edwards (Miraculous Mysteries, 2017, etc.) can't have had much trouble in plucking these plums ... a feast for the equally nostalgic. --Kirkus Reviews
