I'm not a mystery fan, as I've said, but I read one story in this anthology as I'm reading a bunch of different Cornell Woolrich stories right now. I'm sure mystery fans would dig this book - it seems to be their kind of thing - but my review only applies to the Woolrich story "The Room with Something Wrong" (aka "Mystery In Room 913").A hotel detective attempts to solve the mystery of a room that seems to drive occasional tenants into suicide (by defenestrating themselves).

As a collection, this was a fantastic collection. Like all such books, it has a few stories that aren't quite as good. But the overall quality was really good. I certainly don't feel like I can complain. The most fascinating part of this book was the variety of TYPES of solutions to impossible puzzles.

This is a great collection of classic mystery stories. It features works from obscure writers to famous ones. All the sotries are well craftedd designed to get your brain working overtime to solve each "impossilbe" puzzle.

Gotta love those locked-room mysteries!

Great selection of "locked room" stories. Some of them are based on fact. I like the mix of old fashioned mysteries and more current authors.
