Mystery & Mayhem

Publisher: Egmont

This collection has twelve different mysteries told by twelve fantastic authors. The mysteries are grouped together by type - poison, closed-system, canine and impossible mysteries - but there's a range of motives and solutions to the crimes.

Particular stand-out stories in the collection are God's Eye by Frances Hardinge, when a talented artist falls to his death from a hot-air balloon, The Mystery of the Purloined Pearls by Katherine Woodfine, when a star's lucky pearls go missing, and The Mystery of Room 12 by Robin Stevens, when a woman checks into a hotel, but never appears again.

With twelve stories to choose from, there really is something for every mystery lover in this selection.
