'Ingenious, unique and perfectly curated' Dorset Book Detective 'This is one of the best mixed anthologies I've come across ... If you're already a vintage crime fan, then this is one to grab; and if you're new to the genre, then you'll find this a very enjoyable way to introduce yourself to some of the greats. Highly recommended!' FictionFanBlog 'Rather like a box of chocolates ... The sheer variety of tales means there will be something for everyone.' Cross Examining Crime 'The prize gems of this entertaining and informative anthology must be a previously unpublished Dorothy L. Sayers (featuring Lord Peter Wimsey) and Edmund Crispin (featuring Gervase Fen). If for those alone, it is worth stepping over the bodies in the library to grab this volume off the shelf.' Mike Ripley 'I think I've learned more from [Tony Medawar's] researches than from the research of any other Golden Age fan' Martin Edwards, doyouwriteunderyourownname.blogspot.co.uk 'A stunning array of lost stories' Puzzle Doctor, classicmystery.wordpress.com
