This collection of twenty classic Canadian mystery and detective stories, spanning almost a century and a half, will delight readers of mysteries as well as anyone interested in Canadian fiction. Death in a convent, two corpses in a neighbouring house, a mystery writer plotting his next novel, with his wife in the trial run, and an undertaker with a special talent are only a few of the riddles posed by these lively stories. As Alberto Manguel writes in his introduction, 'Nothing carries a reader from page to page with more force than a question - especially a question whose answer seems unobtainable, but isn't.'
