I bought this ebook on the recommendation of Jeff Meyerson, and he didn’t steer me wrong (rarely does). I really enjoyed the stories a lot. Light, straightforward, fun, most of them are locked room, of one form or another, and those are always a lot of fun. As far as I know, this book is only available in ebook from Open Road. I didn’t mind at all, because they were so entertaining. There are several of Rawson’s novels also available, but I wish there were more stories. Unfortunately, these are all he wrote. Recommended.
