Apart from that, Dorothy L Sayers is also a good choice, and Murder Must Advertise is one of her best.
Yeah that Bird book has been on my "should read" list for a while I guess she was quite something...
I'm kinda late getting to this thread this month (too much distraction by copyright and global warming threads
) but I really need to focus on my reading and writing.
Looks like the Murder Mystery is the winner here, will check it out...
