I always have a selection (12 or so) books or anthologies on the go all the time on my Kindles. I have a balance of short story collections and novels. My reading tastes cover science fiction, detective/crime, classics and any well reviewed novel. Since discovering the Mammoth Books of Best British Crime series I have purchased every one and not been disappointed. The offerings are generally of a high standard and I have followed up on a few authors and purchased their full length compositions. I have given this collection 5 stars and would rate the other 10 in the series likewise. I recommend the collections to those who like a good read and do not mind being able to forget the story immediately.
