Some gems, some dross, great value
on 25 August 2013
For less than a pound you get 30 detective short stories from the US, France and UK that span over a hundred years. Included are some great stories - and I'd like to pick out the two by Dashiell Hammett as especially good (it's about time that he was rediscovered - a wonderful writer). So what can you object to with a deal like this? Not much, but you may want to apply serious skim reading skills as some of the stories are pretty poor.
