a nice collection of english country house style murders. a few with the old abode as the main feature,a few with a comic twist. I did find that some authors that I had not read before I may want to read a regular book.
most stories are about 3 pg long a few longer, actually just right for a bit of night time reading.
there is a bit of interesting information about the author,book,era written and so forth to add to the whole mix.
I thoughly enjoyed this collection.

This is my favorite book in the English cozy tradition. It is definitely cozy without being too sweet. I even like the introduction by editor Thomas Godfrey where he explains in a clever way about what a English country house murder entails and the rules of the house. I would never part with this book except that I was able to find it in a hardcover version; so decided to share this one. It really is excellent!!
