Michael Gilbert short story collection

I'm working my way through the new Robert Hale catelogue for Sep-Dec 2008 and it includes details of a new collection of short stories by Michael Gilbert, called A Pity About the Girl and Other Stories. Last year Robert Hale published Even Murderers Take Holidays and Other Mysteries which contained "twenty-seven previously uncollected short stories" .

From Robert Hale: Fourteen previously uncollected short stories with a rich variety of subjects including a ghost story, a spy story and one featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, are gathered here to form "A Pity About the Girl and Other Stories". The crimes range from attempted robberies and drug smuggling to murder. Present are some of Gilbert's most remarkable characters such as Henry Bohun, Hargest Macrae Q.C., Nap Rumbold and Commander Elfe.
