Description

"Mystery lovers are in for a very merry time. . . . All four tales will entertain and delight." --USA Today

"Deft. . . . Entertaining. . . . A welcome belated present from P.D. James." --The Wall Street Journal

"A great mystery writer. . . . Among the many pleasures of reading James is her evocative style." --The Washington Post

"Delectable. . . . Will keep you guessing, and entertained, until the last page." --People

"A Christmas present to be treasured. . . . Rekindles the pleasure of experiencing [James's] imagination, her intellect and her integrity." --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"These hitherto unpublished stories grant us the boon of fresh material from a modern master. . . . Her intelligence and erudition shine forth on every page." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Criminally good. . . . [A] stocking-sized beauty of a book. . . . Short, sweet, wry, smart and darkly funny." --The Post and Courier

"Ingenious plotting, sly humor, pitch perfect settings, and plenty of atmosphere." --The American Spectator

"There are overtones of Agatha Christie, albeit with a more modern sensibility; the perfect prose you have come to anticipate and admire; and red herrings and twists galore. . . . And the focal point of the book . . . is a classic variation on the locked-room mystery with a slick last-possible-moment twist that surprised and tickled even this jaded reader.." --Bruce Tierney, BookPage

"A marvelous holiday present for anyone who loves to read and enjoys a twist at the end of a story." --The New York Journal of Books

"Evokes mystery's Golden Age. . . . These short tales feature James's clever plotting and witty narration with gratifying conclusions. A perfect stocking stuffer for James's many readers." --Library Journal

"Precisely, exquisitely done." --BookReporter

"The four previously uncollected mysteries in this collection show that James was just as adept at the short form as she was at novel length; they efficiently introduce characters and create atmosphere, while posing fair challenges to readers eager to match wits with her." --Publishers Weekly
