Capital Crimes

The British Library

Nostalgic reprint from the Golden Age of British crime writing.
17 London-based short stories from the Library’s collection – atmospheric, chilling, gripping. Blending the familiar with the unexpected: alongside classics by Margery Allingham, Anthony Berkeley and Thomas Burke are excellent and unusual stories by authors who are less well known. The stories give a flavour of how writers have tackled crime in London over the span of more than half a century. Their contributions range from an early serial-killer thriller set on the London Underground and horrific vignettes to cerebral whodunits. Each story is introduced by the editor, Martin Edwards, who sheds light on the authors' lives and the background to their writing.

Paperback, 319 pages.
7½" x 5¼".
