Description
The British Library
Compelling collections of hidden gems of British and global crime writing, republished from the superlative collection of the British Library. Miraculous Mysteries: a congenially cunning collection of 16 locked-room and other ‘impossible’ crime mysteries. Invisible killers and disappearing train drivers, plus disappearances from radio studios and a murder timed to the minute: an entertaining mix of head-scratching tales from the 1890s to the early 1960s. The anthology includes Arthur Conan Doyle’s tale ‘The Lost Special’ from 1898, plus short stories by G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, Mary Allingham and many other less well-known but equally teasing authors. Includes ‘Beware of the Trains’ by Edmund Crispin, ‘Death at 8:30’ by Christopher St John Sprigg and ‘The Broadcast Murder’ by Grenville Robbins. Foreign Bodies: a baffling collection of 15 rarely published short stories, some in English translation for the first time. Reflecting the widespread popularity of mystery writing in the 20th century. A globe-trotting mix takes in tales from Denmark, Mexico, Russia, France, Germany, Japan and more. Includes ‘The Swedish Match’ by Anton Chekhov, ‘The Return of Lord Kingwood’ by Ivans, ‘The Spider’ by Koga Saburo, ‘Murder a la Carte’ by Jean-Toussaint Samat, and ‘The Puzzle of the Broken Watch’ by Maria Elvira Bermudez.
