Great eclectic and marvelously mixed bag of stories, most to all of which were excellent reads no matter their originating genre or sub-genre. I'm going to have to get a copy of this to keep, as I already want to reread some stories despite having returned this book to the library.

An uneven mix but worth the price of the book for "The Caxton Lending Library & Book Depository"by John Connolly.

I almost quit reading this collection of short stories. I didn't care for the first four, and one other later, but after those five, the quality picked up a lot. The stories got better and better until the last two which were the best in the book.

The Mysteries Bookshop Presents the Best Mystery Stories of the Year 2023 consists of twenty-one short tales covering several subgenres including noir and modern. As in any anthology, I liked some better than others. As a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, my favourite story was The Adventure of the Misquoted Macbeth by Derrick Balanger and Dodge by Jeffrey Deavers is a definite standout. Overall, the rest were enjoyable and it introduced me to a lot of new authors whose books I will definitely look for in the future. I also liked that each story begins with an introduction to the writer and is followed by an explanation of how the writer came up with the idea for the tale, something I, and I expect most mystery readers, often wonder about.

But for me, the absolute best part of this anthology is the introduction by Amor Towles in which he praises the cadaver and its important and changing role in mysteries from the Golden Age to today. I now have much more respect for that sadly too-often overlooked body in the story.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright, Christina Delaine, and Terence Kidd and they all do a terrific job of bringing the stories to life.

Thanks to Netgalley and Highbridge Audio for access to this audiobook in exchange for an honest review
