Wow - wonderful little book with wonderful little stories. I love short stories to take to bed with me. These are some of the best I've read in a long time. Clever, insightful, wry, - all with great "Aha!" endings. Guy deMaupassant, move over.

This freebie paired short stories from five Bloomsbury crime authors (Parker Bilal, Conor Fitzgerald, Anne Zouroudi, Thomas Mogford and James Runcie) with stories of the same theme written by the winning competitors in a short-story mystery writing contest. It was a quick read, but lots of fun.
