Book Overview

Eleven classic whodunits starring master sleuths such as Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, and Father Brown.

A superstar lineup of detectives--including Sherlock Holmes, C. Auguste Dupin, and Hercule Poirot--headlines this elegant leather-bound edition of classic mystery stories. Short stories such as Edgar Allan Poe's The Murders in the Rue Morgue and G. K. Chesterton's The Blue Cross are ideal for a cozy evening by the fire, while novels like Agatha Christie's The Murder on the Links and Jules Verne's An Antarctic Mystery will keep you engrossed for days. The eleven works in this volume are preceded by a scholarly introduction that explores the origins of the genre, as well as the development of the modern mystery story and the contributions made by each author.

   Great readings, it's even better when you're in your favorite chair. 🤗
I enjoy reading the book a lot and being that T.V is very good to me in this day and age. Pick up one today and let yourself be taken to forgotten place.

If your farsightedness brings better a magnifying glass and bifocals.
   Book Classic Tales of Mystery
I bought it as a gift for a mystery lover. I am pleased with the collection, which is a spectrum of classics ''. Many of these were probably read in years gone by and will enjoy again as a reread. The leather bound, sturdy copy will hold well to be passed about the entire family of readers. Thank you for bringing classic stories to life!
   A poorly selected collection of stories you already own.
No wonder that this one is on sale for $11. I am a big fan of the leather-bound classics of Canterbury Classics, but it looks like they have put zero effort into this. The end papers are monochromatic and boring, the spine is plain, the story selection is uninspired and the cover art looks like an elementary student's first attempt at Photoshop. And what font did you choose for the cover? Boo's real estate is in Boo. Boo... You're capable of so much better! Your Le Morte d ’ Arthur and The Great Gatsby leather bound editions are works of art!
