5 out of 5 stars.
I would like to thank Poisoned Pen Press for supplying me with a free ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an open and honest review.
Oh be still my little crime fiction heart! What a perfect gift for the coming holidays for those into the ‘Golden Age of Crime’.
Some of the best known authors of that era are showcased in ‘Silent Nights’ and I loved the linking theme of Christmas… possibly as it’s almost that time of year again, who knows? Pretty sure this is indeed the case as I could really see myself curling up with this book in the ‘lull’ between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. It would be keeping with the season as well as feeding my love for a good bit of crime.
I’m really loving the anthologies from the ‘Golden Age of Crime’ that Poisoned Pen Press have been releasing, but this one – so far – has to be my favourite.
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes I would. Crime fiction fans into the ‘Golden Age of Crime’ will love ‘Silent Nights’ as some of the top authors are included with a fine array of Christmas time killings. What more could they want? 😉
Would I buy this book for myself? Yes I would. I do like a good crime fiction anthology and ‘Silent Nights’ is indeed a GOOD crime fiction anthology.
In summary: Lovers of crime fiction from the late 1800’s through to the 1930’s and looking for something to read and enjoy during the end of year holidays – buy this book. It fits perfectly into the holiday season as well as into your passion for a good old whodunit.
Until next time,
