"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews

Review

 “Perhaps the last golden crown of the Golden Age detective story.” —H.R.F. Keating, author of Crime & Mystery: The 100 Best Books
 
“This is the kind of pleasure, in the traditional grand manner, that you may expect from any Christianna Brand story . . . Green for Danger is one of her trickiest.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“[Brand] could construct puzzles with the best of them.” —Elizabeth George, editor of A Moment on the Edge

About the Author

Christianna Brand (1907–1988) was one of the most popular authors of the Golden Age of British mystery writing. Born in Malaya and raised in India, Brand used her experience as a salesgirl as inspiration for her first novel, Death in High Heels, which she based on a fantasy of murdering an irritating coworker. The same year, she debuted her most famous character, Inspector Cockrill, whose adventures she followed until 1957. The film version of the second Cockrill mystery, Green for Danger, is considered one of the best-ever screen adaptations of a classic English mystery.
 
Brand also found success writing children’s fiction. Her Nurse Matilda series, about a grotesque nanny who tames ill-behaved children, was adapted for the screen in 2005, as Nanny McPhee. Brand received Edgar Award nominations for the short stories “Twist for Twist” and “Poison in the Cup”, as well as one for her nonfiction work Heaven Knows Who. The author of more than two dozen novels, she died in 1988.
