By: Maxim Jakubowski. In summer 2008 I returned to the UK after teaching for many years in the USA, having now been appointed Ancient History tutor at Lonsdale College, Oxford. Only then did I learn, with sadness, of the death, several years earlier, of the man with whom in 1968 I had spent one year in undergraduate digs in North Oxford – a man who remains a legend in the Thames Valley Police Force: Chief Inspector E. Morse

British crime-writing has never looked so good. Heading the bestseller lists across the world and mounting a fearsome assault on our TV screens, these are exciting times for crime fans. In this unique anthology, Maxim Jakubowski presents a compendium of the cream of British crime fiction.

The Best British Mysteries provides an excellent introduction to many of the best British mystery writers. Each story was interesting, and many were outstanding. I recommend choosing several of these authors and reading at least one of their full-length mysteries.
I hope to see similar collections offered in the future.

Each story is unique and absorbing; sometimes the ending is so unexpected I have to catch my breath; for example; The Greatest Trick of All, by Lee Childs, unforgettable!

I bought this book because I enjoyed the Best American Short Stories, but I was sorely disappointed. The first story was so trashy in its use of gutter-level sexual language, I pitched into the trash can where it belongs! If you don't like stories that contain sordid gutter talk, forget this one.
Tyler Is Not Here
This is a compilation of short stories from experienced crime and mystery writers, as well as relative newcomers. Indeed, it is difficult not to be entertained by the distinctive styles in Ian Rankin's "Saint Nicked", or Simon Brett's "Exit, Pursued" (bound to be a hit with Shakespeare fans), both of which lead the reader on a meandering course of false trails before their sly endings. A notable new voice is Mat Coward, whose "Too Subtle for Me" both utilizes and mocks existing mystery standards.

On the other hand, there are many stories in the book that fall short of the complexity that is needed for a mystery/crime story; experienced mystery readers will be able to discover a large number of twists within the first paragraphs. As an example of British crime telling it is patchy, but there are spots of great fun.

Some of the best and brightest in the genre are reprsented here. Wonderful short stories that are a very good look at today's British writers. These aren't traditional mysteries like Agatha Christie, but that's not whats being written today and it's not representative of todays world.

In particular I loved the fact that all the stories are a bit different from one another. You definitly can not judge the whole collection by one story.
Magis
I was appalled to find this book a collection of vulgar and mostly boring short stories - not at all what I expected. Some of the authors have other good mysteries, but I found none here. I kept reading thinking surely it would improve, but I was disappointed.
I loaned the book to a friend - a very avid reader of several of these authors - and she was likewise disgusted and returned it to me the next day.
The book is so revolting, I cannot even donate it to a library and I certainly don't want it in my collection, so I am pitching in the trash today.

I was disgusted with this book. For one thing, the title is deceptive because the stories do not meet what I had always considered the definition of mystery stories. They are short stories and admittedly well-written as far as content and structure are concerned, but they are not mystery stories in the tradition of Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle. Furthermore each story was depressing and most were filled with enough vulgarity to make me sick to my stomach. I would be embarrassed for anyone to see this book in my collection. I returned it to the bookstore for store credit, but if they had not taken it back I would have thrown it in the trash.
This anthology serves as an excellent introduction to the current crime fiction scene in Britain. Excellent up and comers and a few bestsellers known over here as well are represented allowing a chance to get in on the ground floor of the next Rankin.
