“Mystery lovers are in for a very merry time. . . . All four tales will entertain and delight.” —USA Today

“Deft. . . . Entertaining. . . . A welcome belated present from P.D. James.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“A great mystery writer. . . . Among the many pleasures of reading James is her evocative style.” —The Washington Post
 
“Delectable. . . . Will keep you guessing, and entertained, until the last page.” —People

“A Christmas present to be treasured. . . . Rekindles the pleasure of experiencing [James’s] imagination, her intellect and her integrity.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“These hitherto unpublished stories grant us the boon of fresh material from a modern master. . . . Her intelligence and erudition shine forth on every page.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Criminally good. . . . [A] stocking-sized beauty of a book. . . . Short, sweet, wry, smart and darkly funny.” —The Post and Courier

“Ingenious plotting, sly humor, pitch perfect settings, and plenty of atmosphere.” —The American Spectator

“There are overtones of Agatha Christie, albeit with a more modern sensibility; the perfect prose you have come to anticipate and admire; and red herrings and twists galore. . . . And the focal point of the book . . . is a classic variation on the locked-room mystery with a slick last-possible-moment twist that surprised and tickled even this jaded reader..” —Bruce Tierney, BookPage

“A marvelous holiday present for anyone who loves to read and enjoys a twist at the end of a story.” —The New York Journal of Books

“Evokes mystery’s Golden Age. . . . These short tales feature James’s clever plotting and witty narration with gratifying conclusions. A perfect stocking stuffer for James’s many readers.” —Library Journal

“Precisely, exquisitely done.” —BookReporter

“The four previously uncollected mysteries in this collection show that James was just as adept at the short form as she was at novel length; they efficiently introduce characters and create atmosphere, while posing fair challenges to readers eager to match wits with her.” —Publishers Weekly
