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


'Each author manages to give the essential facts of his or her case; and the reader has the further interest of seeing how characteristics of the author's fiction writing reveal themselves in this kind of critical and historical work. The layman as well as the criminologist has good reason to read this volume; and he will desire lawyers and detectives also to digest it.' Sunday Times

Reviews for previous Detection Club re-issues:

'A must for all connoisseurs of detective fiction.' Literary Review

'This year's most welcome reissue.' Sunday Telegraph

'A book of irresistible charm for students of the detective story.' Times Literary Supplement
