Following up on yesterday's blog about The Casebook of Bryant and May...
Last October during my holidays in Dorset, I came across a great book in a charity shop - I love finding books in charity shops!
It's called The Art of Mystery and Detective stories and was first published in 1977; my edition is 1986.
It is very comprehensive, from the annals of Newgate prison to the "hardboiled Dicks" via the French Roman Policier of the 19th Century, the lady detectives, the American crime fighters... All this sumptuously illustrated!
What a find!
I think therefore I write.
