"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. SayersReview:
`One of the most original - and entertaining - mysteries I have ever read... A brilliant tour de force that the most jaded fans will relish.' R. A. J. Walters `A reminder of the genial heyday of the genre when the KGB other ingredients of the esurient modern thriller were barely a gleam in Stalin's eye.' Christopher Wordsworth, The Observer `A must for all connoisseurs of detective fiction.' James Harris, Literary Review `This year's most welcome reissue.' Francis Goff, Sunday Telegraph `A book of irresistible charm for students of the detective story.' Ruth Dudley Edwards, Times Literary Supplement
