Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The usual suspects-Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, G.K. Chesterton, and O. Henry-are present and accounted for in this fine introduction to the mystery genre. The selections are excellently performed by such audio stars as Simon Prebble and Simon Vance. Vance, for instance, imparts some needed credibility to Aldous Huxley's unscrupulous husband in "The Giaconda Smile." In all, the collection is a good primer on the genre and will be great fun for those who wish to revisit some well-worn tales. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
