  • A friend lent me this book. I couldn't put it down the first night I got it. Most of the stories are great, one or two were ok, not even good. I would recommend this book for anyone over forty, for me it brought fond memories of life of the late forties and early fifties. I know that most of you in your forties were not born until 1960 or later, but if you were like me most of the TV movies when we were kids were from that era. I especially like the Perry Mason story, Perry's discription in the book is very different from the TV Perry Mason. For now this is a book I look forward to re-reading on a long cold winter's night with a large cup of hot chocolate in front of a warm fire.

  • The first volume of this set really is a tough act to follow, and the second volume just does not measure up so I give the book as a whole a 3-star rating. However, its final chapter - Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca - compensates for all the weaker entries. The editors rightly claim that this feminist novel from 1938 is one of the great mysteries of all time, even though it ordinarily is not considered to be a mystery at all. But if you read it as a mystery, its brilliance shines through.

  • Loved volume one, was so happy to find volume two here. :) It's the continuation of a classic set of mysteries.

  • I had Vol II of this that was my father's. But....Vol I was among the missing. I wanted to have the set.
