Five thrilling tales of mystery, mayhem, and murder from an exceptional quintet of Edgar, CWA Dagger, and National Book Award winners.

Mystery, Inc. by Joyce Carol Oates: When an obsessive collector of bookstores discovers a charming new shop, he decides he must have it at any costeven if he has to commit murder. Remaindered by Peter Lovesey: For some nefarious reason, the widow and former associates of a slain gangster are determined to keep the Precious Finds Bookstore open following the unfortunate demise of the shops owner.

This compilation of bookshop mysteries is pure pleasure to listen to. It‘s my first time listening to short stories of any kind, so I was hesitant initially. The experience was perfect. Each story is different from the other with the exception of the bookstore theme/setting. Two in particular took me by surprise; they did not end as I imagined. I highly recommend for mystery lovers.

Really enjoying this audible book I started listening to while cooking. Not through the John Harvey story yet -so far I am enjoying the characters.
