Murder in the Mews and Other Stories

  • Published by Dodd, Mead and Company in the US as: Dead Man's Mirror (short story collection)
  • Type: Short Story Collection
  • Length: 320 pages

It would seem nowadays - it was not true of Sherlock Holmes, when the rules were less rigid - the shorter the detective story the less good it will be. The least effective of the stories in this book occupies 32 pages; the most 96; and there are two of intermediate length and merit. All are of quite a high standard as long-short stories, but none is as good as any of Mrs Christie's full-length detective novels. The fact is that the reader of today demands to participate in a detective story, and no living writer, unless occasionally Miss Sayers, can find room in a short story for this extra detective. - Simon Nowell-Smith of The Times Literary Supplement's issue of 27 March 1937
