Average Rating of 4.5 from 2 reviews: *****
Dick Thornton

This is a fine book of humorous short stories. At the end of each story, I had a smile, a chuckle, or a good laugh. I highly recommend it as a good read.


Saki is a master of short stories and here are some of his best, "The Open Window" is classic.

Her debut novel, Justification for Murder, has, in the meantime, earned rave reviews and grown into a series.
