Read full description of the books:
I really enjoyed this collection of stories. It introduced me to authors I was not familiar with, and gave me a glimpse of crime writing across different countries/cultures of the world. For instance, my favourite was a story entitled 'The deepest South" by Paco Ignacio Taibo II. This story was so different than any other crime story I had ever read that it took me by surprise. Almost surrealistic. Beautifully written. This book will be a keeper on my shelves so that I can find other stories by authors in this collection - a sort of reference manual for further exploration.
