I had not heard of any of the true crime cases gathered here. One in particular was of the story of an imposter claiming to be an escaped John Wilkes Booth. The story he gave out was that he had escaped and come out West where he lived out his days. There were many who believed in this story and only his death finally revealed the truth.
The Christie story, The Adventure Of The Clapham Cook, was another I had not read. An undiscovered story by the grand dame of mystery is always an occasion to be savored. Overall, although an older book, this was an anthology I enjoyed reading with its unique mix of fiction and nonfiction as well as the interesting and renowned mystery authors found here. This book is recommended for short story mystery readers.
