The stories range from outstanding to jut OK. The narration ranges from very good to very bad. This collection is worth the credit. If you're on one you don't like, hang in there. There are some not to be missed.

Hit and Miss
The stories themselves are a lovely range of stories by authors often over looked in the belief that only Conan Doyle and Wilkie Collins wrote detective stories at this time. Unfortunately these classic stories are sometimes let down by the choice of readers. Two had me disparing before the first sentence was finished, but the rest were read well enough for me to hear stories that I hadn't come across before.
