Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles. On the whole, it was easier than I had expected. Only once did I feel myself at risk. That was when the Inspector suddenly intervened. He said in a harsh voice: "He married your wife, didn't he? Took her away from you some people might say. Nice piece of goods, too, by the look of her. Didn't you feel any grievance?" I had been expecting this question. I knew exactly what I would say. The late, great P. D. James takes us inside the mind of a murderer. Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
