Awesome Anthology!!!! These titles may be pre-1923 but this is a cool and classy selection and here is why itâ??s worth buying: all five books are in one file; all five books have been beautifully restored and expertly formatted; there are some neat extras including two quite insightful essays; links to free audio files and, best of all, a great table of contents with hotlinks to each chapter in all five works. Given that Agatha Christie and Wilkie Collins are amongst the authors, for 99c this is absolutely money well…

A must for lovers of British mystery novels I was not disappointed with the selection of mysteries in the collection. As an Agatha Christie fan I of course enjoyed “The Affair at Styles,” but also loved “The Secret Agent” and “The Dead Secret.” The collection included authors I read for the first time. I’m happy to have this book in my collection.

Beats tracking these down at Barnes This is a good collection of a couple of my favorite mysteries and a few I haven’t yet read. This saves a lot of money actually versus finding them at a bookstore, and it’s a really good selection. I’m bound to buy more megapack volumes of such spy and detective thrillers in the near future. Thanks for the great collection.
