Best mystery anthology I've heard

As with all anthologies, the quality varies. There are several that are outstanding. The worst is pretty good. The narrations are all good. There were several that I skipped because I'd heard them in other collections, but most of these are not easily found. I recommend these to those who love mysteries.
