    I read a couple of Antonia Fraser s Jemima Shore mysteries back in the day, and remember them as modestly entertaining I didn t catch the TV serialization of Quiet as a Nun, and at most I saw a single episode of the later TV series Jemima Shore Investigates, with Patricia Hodge in the title role By contrast, I d earlier enjoyed Fraser s biography of Mary Queen of Scots so greatly that it transformed my reading habits for the next few years historical biographies were a staple of my literary I read a couple of Antonia Fraser s Jemima Shore mysteries back in the day, and remember them as modestly entertaining I didn t catch the TV serialization of Quiet as a Nun, and at most I saw a single episode of the later TV series Jemima Shore Investigates, with Patricia Hodge in the title role By contrast, I d earlier enjoyed Fraser s biography of Mary Queen of Scots so greatly that it transformed my reading habits for the next few years historical biographies were a staple of my literary diet Whatever its scholarly merits I can t judge those Fraser s biography is a great piece of storytelling So it was nostalgia that recently made me pick up a copy of Fraser s collection Jemima Shore s First Case also a curiosity as to how these tales might have weathered the years As a quick summation, I found themwell, still just modestly entertaining.The book contains five tales featuring Jemima Shore, investigative journalist for Megalith Television and part time amateur sleuth The first of these, the collection s title story, in fact sees her as still a schoolgirl it sof an adventure yarn than a mystery, as the fifteen year old Jemima hazards her virginity in the busting of a drugs ring The pattern of the mysteries being broken down through coincidence, lucky observation and the like, rather than yer outright ratiocination, continues through the other four Jemima stories, the best, most ambitious and longest of which is The Case of the Parr Children The eight further entries in the collection are a mixture of supernatural stories and sub Roald Dahl offerings At the best these are pretty good I much liked Boots, about a slyly murderous little girl, and especially On the Battlements, a superbly atmospheric piece slightly let down by a conventionally normative ending Another fine tale, despite the whopping implausibility at its core, is The Night Mother Some of the remaining tales areless good, but none of them are boring.My copy of the book, picked up second hand, is a rather curious edition It claims to be the first printing of the first US edition Norton, 1987 but clearly isn t aside from anything else, it has a 13 digit ISBN It looks and feels like a POD production, so I m wondering if it belongs to that period when major publishers were experimenting with keeping low demand titles in print through POD A bit of a curio, whatever the case

    Only about half of the short stories are actual mysteries featuring Jemima Shore, the dashing reporter and sexy sleuth The others aren t even mysteries really,like macabre tales with scenarios such as a young wife who puts the family dog to sleep, a misogynist writer who s represented by a feminist literary agent, and a single mother who has a romance with a bossy ghost in her second hand Mini Everything s mildly amusing but none of it s particularly riveting.

    This is a short book at less than 200 pages with 13 stories and most have unexpected twists at the end There 5 that feature Jemima Shore with the others being stand alone tales It was written in the 1980 s and they are set in England for the most part I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it for anyone who likes a murder and crime mysteries that are not too violent.

    An intriguing group of short stories A couple of them feature Jemima Shore the rest are just rather macabre but interesting plots I normally enjoy a novelthan stories, but these were very good.

    A series of short stories, some involving Jemima and some not, that solve murders or contemplate them None stand out, but all are entertaining and quick Worth a read if you like Jemima Shore, but perhaps not worth the time otherwise Fun and quick.
