The Long Arm of the Law: Classic Police Stories - Various Authors,Martin Edwards

wow, all of a sudden I’m down to just two precious stories left in this impressive collection. the one I just read, by John Creasey was a slight letdown compared to most of what is in the book - but next is something by Michael Gilbert, who wrote one of my favorite Mysteries ever: Smallbone Deceased.

John Creasey story next - I haven’t read him in ages (liked Gideon’s Month).

a fabulous collection of stories. I always brace myself for ups and downs, with books like this...but, here, so many ups!

a satisfying story from Henry Wade (loved his novel Lonely Magdelen!), which will hopefully be followed by a terrific tale from Christianna Brand (loved her novel Green For Danger!).

enjoyed the Freeman Wills Crofts story ‘Fingerprints’, and it reminded me I still have to get to his novel The Cask. next in this collection will be an E. C. R. Lorac tale, and I recently acquired one of her books, Fire in the ThatchBats in the Belfry was entertaining, but I want to see if I can rate Lorac higher than 3.5 stars. 

 

overall, I feel this is a stronger group of stories than what was in Blood on the Tracks, although there was some fun stuff there. the Lorac story leads to something by Henry Wade, an author I have longed to get back to since going crazy for Lonely Magdalen.
