Entertaining, if you like real-life crime detection, especially on the streets of London. I read this with a 1911 Ward Lock Illustrated Guide to London and a 1970s London A-Z at hand. Looking up locations added to the atmosphere. (Of course, you could have online maps to browse as well.) Volume One offers five stories in various times and themes: poisonings in the 1890s, burglary in the 1930s, murder in the early 1950s, spying in the mid-'50s, and kidnaping/murder in 1970.

Excellent pieces of work. The Strange Case of Stanley Setty captured the whole of my attention I could not look away from the book. At one moment it felt so engrossed in the book I "actually" saw the poisoned girls and their body convulsions.
