The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books - Martin Edwards

There are a few of us reading this as a buddy read. Edited by Martin Edwards, who has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things vintage crime fiction, this book takes a look at the development of crime fiction beginning with its roots in the post-Victorian era. 


I'm sure that this book will have the effect of blowing up my TBR. I've read the first two chapters, and have already added at least 5 books to my reading list!


I'm reading this for my "free square."
