Review: Murder Most British - edited by Janet Hutchings

A nice mix of classic and more modern British authors that show a bit some of the best traditions over the years.  From well know classics like the Sherlock Holmes tale:  The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle and Agatha Christie's The Mystery of the Baghdad chest to more recent tales like The Gentlemen in the Lake by Robert Barnard.  Some of my favorites were:  Percival Bland's Proxy by R. Austin Freeman, The New Hat by Thomas Burke, and A Posteriori by Helen Simpson (hysterical).
