Great Stories although Misleading Title

Truly great collection of murder mysteries from arguably the best golden age detective author. With Christmas approaching, I love to get into the winter mood with some chilling winter mysteries, but was a little disappointed that this is not really a themed collection. While all are very good, one is set in Palma De Mallorca so not very wintery! That aside, a truly enjoyable set of short stories and fans of the genre will not be disappointed.
