Waterstones Says

From sinister goings-on at English resorts to deadly games on the continent, this irresistible anthology of sun-soaked whodunits from the Golden Age makes for perfect summer reading.

It's the height of summer. As the heat shimmers on the streets and ice cream melts onto sticky fingers, tempers begin to rise and old grudges surface. From Cornish beaches to the French Riviera, it's not just a holiday that's on people's minds... it's murder.

In these ten classic stories from writers such as Dorothy L. Sayers, Cyril Hare and Margery Allingham, you'll find mayhem and mysteries aplenty. So grab the suncream and head down to the beach - if you dare.
