    These masterful stories reflect the classic railway era in Britain and provide the perfect setting for the perfect murder - or almost perfect. Challenge your own skills of deduction as you match wits with the best. Narrator Patrick Malahide's evocation of time, place, and culture is imbued with moody mystery most fine.

    Overall

    I have long been a reader of Golden Age detective stories (Christie, Sayers, Marsh, Heyer, Allingham, and Crispin, to name a few) and bought this audio book to help me branch out beyond my well-known authors. Short stories from multiple authors seemed a logical choice.

    I was not disappointed with the stories at all, but the audio book itself is an issue. The first story is prefaced with the title and author, but the other stories are not separated at all, which was rather disconcerting. The narration is quite excellent; it is only the lack of titles for the latter three stories that is a problem. And it certainly is not an insurmountable problem--the stories are complete and most enjoyable.

    Other than the formatting issue, this is a great set of stories for branching out into more "classic" detective fiction. And, really, what could be more British than railway murders?
