Crimes of Cymru: Classic Mystery Tales of Wales

by Martin Edwards (Editor) - £10.99  British Library Publishing (2023)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780712354080 | ISBN 10: 0712354085

A brand-new anthology centred around the best stories from celebrated Welsh authors as well as short mysteries inspired by or set in the cities and wilds of the country.
 
“Ahoy, my lad!” he bellowed back. “I didn’t expect you so early. Come for a dip! The water’s fine. Everything is—” Then it happened.
 
Mystery and murder runs amok amidst ominous peaks and icy lakes. In hushed valleys, venom flows through villages harbouring grievances which span generations. The landscapes and locales of Wales (“Cymru”, in the Welsh language) have fired the imagination of some of the greatest writers in the field of crime and mystery fiction.
 
Presenting fourteen stories ranging from 1909 through to the 1980s, this new anthology celebrates a selection of beloved Welsh authors such as Cardiff’s Roald Dahl and Abergavenny’s Ethel Lina White, as well as lesser-known yet highly skilled writers such as Cledwyn Hughes and Jack Griffith. Alongside these home-grown tales, this collection also includes a handful of gems inspired by, or set in, the cities and wilds of Wales by treasured authors with an affinity for the country, such as Christianna Brand, Ianthe Jerrold and Michael Gilbert.
