Fans of classic British crime novels feel right at home in the English cottages, country manors, and cozy pubs that serve as the settings for those Golden Age mysteries. But sometimes even a staunchly British whodunit needs a holiday! This collection of fourteen crime stories by Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, J. Jefferson Farjeon, Josephine Bell, and other masters of the detection tale are all set in continental Europe, where dastardly deeds unfold in Roman catacombs and on the French Riviera—and where the guillotine is still the executioner's choice for justice. Smart, sinister, often baffling until the final reveal, Continental Crimes is a deliciously dark Grand Tour! (KG)
