Foreign Bodies: A British Library Crime Classic

This book is a collection of assorted stories. The assortment has the thread of mystery running through them all.

The fascination of ‘whodunits’ of any sort started early for me, having graduated directly from Enid Blyton to Agatha Christie ( If either of these authors are unknown to you, this blog post or any of the others here might not hold any appeal for you)

These are some stories that predate Agatha Christie and some that don’t. Most of them are translated into English for our convenience. They are a fun read, and within the short span os the tale, the case is built and solved.They are based in times that are alien to me, but still serve as a character study on what was considered important during that time period. Not all the stories are great but for a collection, it is a good one.
