    A solid collection well curated and representative of the many styles of classic detective fictionThe only weakness to the collection is that some excellent authors compare badly with their peers because of the mixing of short story and novels Detective fiction needs witnesses evidence and clues to be discovered in the correct order and because the short story format lacks the space for the detective to run down clues or follow leads the genre turns to coincidence and a light touch rather than discovery and legwork to keep the story moving The volume opens with The Maltese Falcon Hammett's masterpiece of characterization and mood This long immersion in seedy San Francisco is followed by Sayers' always amusing Peter Whimsey at his most flip in The Learned Adventure of the Dragon's Head which is a story that I love to reread in most circumstances but on the heels of Sam Spade's moral uandaries this lightest of all of Whimsey's adventures appears embarrassingly fluffyAlso I would not have made the same selection of stories from Allingham and Du Maurier

    Currently re reading because the first mystery in the volume is The Maltese Falcon this year's Big Read selection in Wichita I wish this hadn't been chosen as a community read It's drenched in unredeeming and unredeemed machismo and homophobia that are difficult to stomach For all its merits as a classic in the genre or even the representative classic of its genre it's an unfortunate choice for a community event I hope we'll see some discussion of the difficult aspects of the book but I'm not holding my breathAs I recall the other mysteries in the volume are all pretty good especially the Peter Wimsey story which is one of the few genuinely light hearted Wimseys

    Rating comments are on the short stories novellas I'm rating the two novels separatlyI enjoyed almost all of the mysteries in this volume Mysteries from this era 1920s 1950s appeal to me because they're contemporary enough that I still understand most of the social customs etc but the plot and solution tend to rely on intellect than current mysteries do since the characters don't have the same technology Characters in danger can't whip out a cell phone and the police can't solve a crime simply by putting DNA in a database

    Never finished but a friend was thrilled that it had a Rex Stout mystery that she didn't know existed
