Review of Book Full of Chills and Chuckles

Title: Crime Please!
Author: Ann Morven
Author's Amazon profile page.
ISBN-13: 9781470183974
Category: Crime fiction collection
Publisher: Darling Newspaper Press

Reviewed by Cathy MacLeod originally for Amazon  

This collection of short stories particularly impressed me with its diversity. Ann Morven ("diva of the whodunit") spreads farther here than do her novels, presenting tales that vary from the macabre to the magical. There are, of course, her signature whodunits as well (four of them). Also the elements of chills and chuckles that she mixes so adroitly.
I found her characters intriguing and their problems compelling. For entertaining crime this author ranks among the best.
