    Highly recommended

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I don't always have a lot of time to read and this book satisfies my love of reading many "who done its" written by the best writers of that genre. Each story is different, and I enjoyed the various writting styles. Wonderful addition to my library as I can start and finish a story before I go to bed, and look forward to a new one when I pick it up again. Well done! Great selection, I'll look forward to the best of 2012

    You will LOVE this anthology!

    When I read a book, whether paper book or Nook book, if I get distracted, or want a change of pace, I'll read more than one book at a time, for variety. I did NOT do that with this Nook book! I was glued to every page, and the stories just kept getting better and better. If you want twists and turns and a roller coaster ride of a book, DO check this one out! Definitely a good read!

    Many good short stories

    The book has a lot of good short mysteries, some better than others. Incredibly long introduction that I ended up skipping most of in order to get to the stories.

    Meh

    Like most collections of disparate unrelated works, this one has some hits and some misses.

    Great stories!

    I LOVE short stories. These are great! I have actually read a few in another book, but I didn't mind re-reading them. I always say to myself that I like these compilations so that I can put it down and pick it back up easily, but I find myself opening it up and devouring the whole book in one or two sittings!

    Not impressed

    After the fourth story, I quit. I wouldn't call these mysteries, and I didn' t care for them. I found the unpleasant, and definitely not for young readers.
