Richard R.

I really like Dexter's books and this collection while, as you point out, slightly uneven, is well worth reading. ANY Dexter is worth reading!

Martin Edwards

I think this is a fair summary. As Richard says, any Colin Dexter is worth reading, but he is at his best when making use of the space afforded by the length of a novel.

BV Lawson

Agreed, Richard! And it's a good starting point for folks who haven't read the novels or may not have time at the moment. (Which I know too well.)

I think it's interesting, Martin, to see which novelists do well with short stories and which don't. Or, I guess I should say, which authors can use both short and long forms equally well. Still, I think Dexter does a good enough job that new readers may find these stories a good entrance point for the novels.
