As with most collections, I found certain stories and writing styles more appealing than others. In fact, I really liked about half of the stories in the collection. The others were okay, and one was a translated piece that didn't work at all. The language was stilted and transitions awkward. Among my favorites were "Benny's Space" by Marcia Muller, "The Scar" by Nancy Pickard, "Murder Without a Text" by Amanda Cross, "Deborah's Judgment" by Maraget Maron, and "Her Good Name" by Carolyn G. Hart. I also discovered great writers I wasn't familiar with such as Liza Cody, Gillian Slovo, and Dorothy B. Hughes.
This collection features all types of protagonists with different jobs and viewpoints, and it was fun to see famous, fictional private eyes in one book. All stories are not created equal, but I'm sure you'll find some standouts in among them.
I am reading them slowly, like luscious truffles, so that I can savor them over a longer period of time.
