От классической новеллы с головоломкой, которую читатель решает вместе с ее героями, до криминального триллера, полного неожиданных поворотов сюжета, — в сборник вошли только лучшие английские детективы. Кто-то из 32 выдающихся авторов Туманного Альбиона, как Агата Кристи или Артур Конан Дойл, в представлении не нуждается, кто-то станет настоящим открытием.

From the likes of Robert Randisi, Peter Crowther, and Max Rittenberg, these 30 stories of bizarre and impossible crimes will fascinate and intrigue the reader who grapples with their intricate puzzles. A man alone in an all-glass phone booth, visible on CCTV and with no one near him, is killed by an ice pick. A man sitting alone in a room is shot by a bullet fired only once – over 200 years ago. A man enters a cable-car alone, and is visible for the entire journey, only to be found dead when he reaches the bottom. A man receives mail in response to letters apparently written by him – after his death. The Mammoth Book of Perfect Crimes and Impossible Mysteries is a stunning collection of brand new and previously unpublished stories, as well as many stories from rare mystery journals appearing for the first time in book form.

Una prostituta de la alta sociedad muere en extrañas circunstancias. Más extraño aún es el hecho de que lega todos sus bienes al movimiento sufragista. Nell Bray, una joven e indómita defensora de los derechos de la mujer, parte hacia Biarritz con la misión de reclamar el dinero de la herencia. Para Nell, recién salida de una cárcel inglesa, una visita a la elegante costa francesa no es un mal cambio. Pero si creía que aquello iba a ser un paseo estaba muy equivocada. Momentáneamente la audaz sufragista se convierte en detective, resuelta a demostrar que la muerte de su insólita benefactora no fue un suicidio.

Holmes and Watson in America. Original short stories. A literary gem? Elementary, of course!

Sherlock Holmes makes his American debut in this fascinating and extraordinary collection of never-before-published crime and mystery stories by bestselling American writers. The world's greatest detective and his famous sidekick Watson are on their first trip across the Atlantic as they fight crime all over nineteenth-century North America.

Each original story is written in the extraordinary tradition of Doyle's best work, yet each comes with a unique American twist that is sure to satisfy and exhilarate both Sherlock Holmes purists and those who always wished that Holmes could nab the nefarious closer to home.

This is a must-read for any mystery fan and for those who have followed Holmes' illustrious career over the waterfall and back again. 12 b/w illustrations.
