Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.
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."
