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.
I'm at Part 5 of this fascinating book. I totally understand why this won the Edgar award, because it is such a fast and fun read, that delves into the lives/work of various Golden Age authors that goes much beyond the usual suspects of Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers. In addition, Martin Edwards has spent some time profiling the various true crimes that had an influence over these writers.
Even though it is quite long, it reads really fast and is thoroughly entertaining.
