Foreign Bodies by Martin Edwards

This is a collection of fifteen stories from authors from France, Japan, Denmark, Austria, Germany, Holland, Mexico, Russia, and elsewhere.  They are old stories but they hold up well and still taunt you with the mystery before giving you the answer.

Poisoned Pen Press and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can pick up a copy now.

I enjoyed the majority of these stories.  Sometimes the old mysteries are the best.  I didn't recognize many of these authors but the stories were solid and were not easy to figure out.  My favorite story was the last one:  The Puzzle of the Broken Watch.  Sometimes the little ones see more than the adults do...

Give a try.  It's not a long read but it's a rewarding read.  Tell me which story appealed to you the most.
