David William's whodunits have a huge and devoted following, recruited through the ingenuity of his plotting and the wit, style and sheer elegance of his writing. His brilliant short stories, never collected in one volume before, offer in addition the rich classical virtue of a superbly contrived twist in every tale. His favourite gold-digging spouses get delicious outings, as do the perpetrators of two fascinating insurance scarns and the members who so nearly bring disgrace on a London's gentleman's club. The tricking, on the Riviera, of an innocent Wimbledon spinster, the assassination of an ex-president and the hilarious arrangements for the demise of an unfavourite rich relative by a scrumptious Welsh harpy, are glorious examples of the genre. All these and other gems in this fifteen strong collection make for a compulsive and entirely satisfying virtuoso entertainment.

Publishers Weekly, 2002-01-14 An antiques dealer happens upon a stolen jade dish, a pharmacist becomes an accomplice to murder and a man tries to kill his best friend in Criminal Intentions, a collection of 15 stories from as many different perspectives by Welshman David Williams (Unholy Writ and 16 other Mark Treasure mysteries). While the stories' abbreviated length prevents Williams from developing fully realized characters, his final moment plot twists make them compulsively readable.
