    The Complete Short Stories is a collection to be loved and cherished, from one of the finest short-story writers of the twentieth century. From the cruel irony of A member of the Family to the fateful echoes of The Go-Away Bird and the unexpectedly sinister The Girl I Left Behind Me, in settings that range from South Africa to the Portobello Road, Muriel Spark coolly probes the idiosyncrasies that lurk beneath the veneer of human respectability, displaying the acerbic wit and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her unique talent.

    Private eye Donald Strachey is out to solve another mystery, this time in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. When he starts probing into the institution of gay marriage, he doesn't expect it to lead to murder. Along with a birds-eye view of Berkshire culture, this audiobook combines the literary styles of Dashiell Hammett with the wit of Dorothy Parker. A taut, suspenseful, ripped from the headlines thriller, this is the ninth in the Strachey series.
