PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
The British Library
Continental Crimes: a man is forbidden to uncover the secret of a fairy-tale castle by the Rhine; a headless corpse is found in a secret garden in Paris; and a drowned man is fished from the sea off the Italian Riviera, leaving the carabinieri to wonder why his socialite friends are so unconcerned by his death. 14 crime stories in European settings: cosmopolitan cities, rural idylls and crumbling châteaux. Includes lesser-known stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, G.K. Chesterton, J. Jefferson Farjeon, plus other classic writers.
Blood on the Tracks: a signalman is found dead by a railway tunnel; a man identifies his wife as a victim of murder on the Underground; and two passengers mysteriously disappear between stations, leaving behind a dead body. Trains have long-been a favourite setting for crime writers, the enclosed carriages and limited number of suspects providing a tantalising locked-room scenario on-the-move. 15 rail-themed crime stories to baffle and beguile. Includes lesser-known stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, Dorothy Sayers and Baroness Orczy, plus many other classic writers.
