BOTTOM LINE: Part of the “Murder and Mysery in...” series, this is an extremely good collection.There is a nicely balanced selection of short stories, some old, some late 1980s, a few scary, some funny, all with a distinctly “downeast” atmosphere to them, making this a lovely vacation read. Several are magnificently twisted, and the rest are at least good.

“Good Fences”, Alfred Kuan (aka Harvey A. Dodd), 1978
— new neighbor seems a tad nasty
“Time and Time Again”, Harry Kemelman, 1962
— stuffy uncle, wild nephew, old watches and lots of money
“Slowly, Slowly, in the Wind”, Patricia Highsmith, 1972
— superbly creepy, emotional demise of a rich man without scruples

— daffy backwoods family with brains, and lots of motives for murder
“The Diary of Death”, Edmund Ware Smith
— a nice little camp deteriorates into murder
“The Problem of the Snowbound Cabin”, Edward D. Hoch, 1987
