About the Author:

"The Detection Club is a private association of writers of detective fiction in Great Britain, existing chiefly for the purpose of eating dinners together at suitable intervals and of talking illimitable shop ... Its membership is confined to those who have written genuine detective stories (not adventure tales or `thrillers') and election is secured by a vote of the club on recommendation by two or more members, and involves the undertaking of an oath." Dorothy L. Sayers

Review:

Literary Review`This year's most welcome reissue.' Sunday Telegraph`A book of irresistible charm for students of the detective story.' Times Literary Supplement
