Quotes

'Some famous names appear, as do quite a few writers unknown or unjustly forgotten and there are many gems. This is not a literary meal to be consumed too quickly. A diet of four stories a day is suggested'

The Times, Books of the Year

'What better Christmas gift for crime fiction addicts than this mighty tome ... Hugely enjoyable'

Irish Independent

'Anyone who cares about the best mystery writing of the past century and beyond would be lucky to receive this thick volume during the holidays'

Washington Post

'It should keep thriller fans entertained well into the New Year'

Herald, The Year's Best Books for Gifts

'There's something for every festive mood in this must-read collection ... This is the best Christmas crime anthology in print today'

Urban Fox

'A great book to keep you company on those drawn out winter evenings ... Full of tales that are especially worthy of reading aloud'
