Picked this somewhat randomly while looking for audiobooks to listen to on my commute. I actually haven't read much detective fiction before, so this was a great place to start. This book contains a pretty good selection from a variety of authors. Most of the stories were pretty predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless. My favorites were: "The Assassins Club" by Nicholas Blake and "The Case of the Tragedies in the Greek Room" by Sax Rohmer.

Just a fun collection of random detective stories. Some where a lot of fun - the first two, especially. Of course I love Conan Doyle. I didn't much care for Blake. If you like the mystery genre, this is a nice compilation of short stories.

Some stories were better than others. However, this does serve as a good introduction to these wonderful authors.
