Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Best British Mysteries, an anthology edited by Maxim Jakubowski, collects 25 outstanding short crime stories published in 2002. Many of the authors among them, Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Anne Perry, Bill James and Peter Lovesey will be familiar to American readers. (Mar.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
From The Critics
The Best British Mysteries feature short stories by well-known authors such as Ian Rankin, Simon Brett, Anne Perry, Peter Robinson, Peter Lovesey and John Harvey. But the book also includes lesser-known authors who are just as talented such as Edward Marston and Bill James. This list of authors alone demonstrates the vast genres included within this book. Some of the authors stick with characters that are familiar from their series, while others spread their wings and try different situations, characters and genres.

The book is a valuable guide to anyone trying to learn more about British mysteries. Any reader could sit down with this book and find at least one author they were interested in perusing. For me, this book made me want to retry Ian Rankin. Although the one book I had previously read by him was a disappointment, his short story showed that he has real talent." -- Reviewingtheevidence.com
