Two stars for a few vaguely amusing incidents and for some snippets of historical information.
The basic idea of a book written in 5 parts by different authors has one weakness and it shows in "The First Murder".It can be spoiled if you don't like the writing style or characters of one of the sections and i don't happen to like the characters "Doll Pocket" and "Joe Malinferno" by Ian Morson.This apart it was aan enjoyable read.
None of the authors gives a distinctive voice to any individual characters, and they remain entirely one dimensional. For example, one leading character who is close to term with her pregnancy, yet that aspect appears to have been forgotten. This particular story seems to have been a Western originally. It has been very badly transposed to the Middle Ages with a remorselessly evil 'black hat' toting a pair of crossbows. Really!
Other stories in this book are written with melodramatic flourishes that would be just the thing to entertain the reader who adores Barbara Cartland.
As the jacket says, this is the sort of thing one might pick up at an airport. It is initially distracting to fill a short spell of tedium but is not missed when it is left on the 'plane or the beach.
