Detection in the Golden Age -- new edition with a recently discovered short-short story! In 1930, Anthony Berkeley Cox (1893 1971) founded London's Detection Club, whose members swore that their detectives shall well and truly detect the crimes presented to them, using those wits which it may please you to bestow upon them.

This is now the definitive, complete edition of the Sheringham stories,
