Very weak collection of stories - I only attempted the first 7 of the 25 short stories in this collection before giving up (the final two stories are the full text of Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone and The Hound of the Baskervilles, both of which I have elsewhere). Only the House of Clocks and the first third of the Bow Street Mystery were any good, I thought. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The theme of this Megapack is classic mystery and crime fiction from the Victorian era. We have taken the liberty of extending the qualifying publication dates to the end of World War I, since that event marked more of a turning point in world literature than the advent of the Edwardian Age.
