About the Author

The Detection Club was formed in 1930 by a group of British mystery writers, including Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, G. K. Chesterton, Anthony Berkeley, Ronald Knox, Freeman Wills Crofts, Arthur Morrison, Hugh Walpole, John Rhode, Jessie Rickard, Baroness Orczy, R. Austin Freeman, G. D. H. Cole, Margaret Cole, E. C. Bentley, Henry Wade, and H. C. Bailey. John Dickson Carr, elected in 1936, was the first American member. A number of works were published under the club’s sponsorship; most of these were written by multiple members of the club, each contributing one or more chapters in turn.
 

Review

`One of the most original - and entertaining - mysteries I have ever read... A brilliant tour de force that the most jaded fans will relish.' R. A. J. Walters `A reminder of the genial heyday of the genre when the KGB other ingredients of the esurient modern thriller were barely a gleam in Stalin's eye.' Christopher Wordsworth, The Observer `A must for all connoisseurs of detective fiction.' James Harris, Literary Review `This year's most welcome reissue.' Francis Goff, Sunday Telegraph `A book of irresistible charm for students of the detective story.' Ruth Dudley Edwards, Times Literary Supplement --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
