  • Loved this collection of stories!

    Goodness, my passport has been well and truly stamped after my round the world mystery tour with the "CWA Anthology of Short Stories" published by Orenda Books! Twenty eight short stories are featured here by a variety of well known and prominent authors in the crime writing industry. Introduced and edited by author Martin Edwards (who also has a story included) explains how each author was given the criteria of basing their stories on the unifying theme of travel and intriguing destinations. They've certainly achieved that! The book kicks off with 'The Queen of Mystery' written by the Queen of Mystery herself - Ann Cleeves - telling a tale about a writer who worries she will soon be no longer famous. All the stories have either a little moral to tell or have an unexpected twist in them to keep you on your toes and what is so delightful about this collection of stories is that you have so many different styles of writing by accredited writers and their superb prose to choose from, you'll be incredibly spoilt for choice. With contributions from William Ryan, Peter Lovesey, Ragnar Jonasson and many more. With such an unbelievable high standard of writing you'll be chomping at the bit to start each new tale straight away. I enjoyed each and every one, but I particularly enjoyed C.L. Taylor's 'You'll Be Dead By Dawn' a fantastic tale of revenge and as a complete change to normal story writing Christine Poulson's 'Accounting for Murder' is so unique in using receipts only as the narrative, it's brilliant at how it has you unfolding the plot in your mind and imagining the story for yourself. I look forward to sharing my thoughts with a fellow reader who is going to be reading this soon and I really can't recommend this book highly enough, there is something for everyone here and it's definitely worth every penny. Perfect as a Christmas gift for the discerning crime reader. An unputdownable round the world trip, that when you finally come down to land will leave you breathless for more..... 5 stars

    Thanks for your feedback!
