5.0 out of 5 stars Classic collection, 10 Feb 2014
As you might expect this is a collection of impossible crime stories from this modern practitioner of the art. They're full of atmosphere and mystery which is what you want in this type of story. Not for you the dullness of plausibility, you want to be challenged to solve the crime, to think that with just a little more imagination YOU could have worked things out for yourself. You want to play what John Dickson Carr called "the grandest game in the world", to indulge in a battle of wits with the author in a formal detective story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't use the handle!, 30 Jan 2014
I bought this back in 2012 and have been filling it up nicely ever since; it's now nearly full. Yesterday I made the mistake of picking it up by the handle, at which point the lid came apart. The lock and the lower metal rim stayed in place but the top half just ripped almost completely off. I managed to bash it back in place but it will never be quite the same again. Always put your hand underneath when it's full and you want to move it.

1.0 out of 5 stars A mind of its own, 4 Aug 2012
Day 1: plugged the charger into the laptop (Acer 5740G)and it charged up.
Day 2: turned on laptop, charger DIDN'T WORK. Swapped it with my daughter's charger on her Packard Bell; both laptops charged up.
Day 3: daughter turns on her laptop with new Acer charger, charger DIDN'T WORK; swapped chargers back and both laptops charged up.
Day 4: turned on Acer laptop with Acer charger; charger DIDN'T WORK. Swapped chargers, Acer powered up, swapped chargers back again and the Acer charger worked! Turned off laptop to go out, charger left in place, power turned off, came back and turned on laptop, charger works.
Day 5: time will tell...
