Bodies From The Library selected and introduced by Tony Medawar, mystery, subtitled Lost Tales of Mystery and Suspense by Agatha Christie and other Masters of the Golden Age, Collins Crime Club 2018 hardcover. Stories from the Golden Age.
Sixteen forgotten tales which have either been published only once before – perhaps in a newspaper or rare magazine – or have never before appeared in print.
These stories are almost all really good, and I was very glad to have bought the book. I had some particular favorites, and I’m sure you, if you are a fan of golden age stories, will too. But I won’t say a lot more because EVERYTHING you need to know about this book is in the very fine post on the Cross Examining Crime blog post HERE. I couldn’t do a better job of describing the book or stories. Go there! Read it!
