"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 run amok amidst ominous peaks and icy lakes. In hushed valleys, venom flows through villages harboring grievances that 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 short stories first published in 1909 through the 1980s, this new anthology celebrates a selection of beloved Welsh authors Cardiff's Roald Dahl and Abergavenny's Ethel Lina White, as well as lesser-known yet highly skilled writers including 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.
