Murder at Christmas, Various Authors
Welcome to day 9 of my 12 Reads of Christmas series, where I’m posting the things I like to read over the festive period every day from Christmas Day until Twelfth Night (6 January). More crime fiction for day 9, this time with a collection of short stories.
This is part of a series of compilations of 10 classic crime stories. Murder at Christmas was published in November 2019 in time for this Christmas and includes stories from Dorothy L. Sayers, Margery Allingham, and more.
Naturally I have the preceding collections; A Very Murderous Christmas (2018), Murder on Christmas Eve (2017), and Murder Under the Christmas Tree (2016).
All of these collections are edited together by Cecily Gayford and she picks a wide range of crime fiction authors from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (featuring in Day 8 of my 12 Reads of Christmas, to modern author Val McDermid. I also really appreciate how female-heavy these collections are, especially in this genre.
(Apologies for the second semi-unrelated book post image on the bounce. Christmas holidays at my parents’ and leaving a camera memory card back in London have interfered with content but normal service will be resumed shortly)
