I really enjoyed the stories in the first part of the collection. The stories in the last part are more science fiction. Still interesting, but not what I would consider mysteries. The narration is good throughout, unlike with many collections.

Not all there

While the description helpfully itemizes the contents and associated readers, it is misleading in that neither The Poor Relation nor The Music on the Hill were found in the files I downloaded.

Edgar Wallace book was the best

A few of the stories were boring and lacked the right material which had me slipping ahead.

The Edgar Wallace book is well worth a listen.
