From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Not only does Martin Edwards write the history of the Detection Club, and dish on the members, he also adds reference material at the end of the book that takes up nearly 20% of the book, according to the information at the bottom of the ebook. Bibliography, appendices, and indices hold more information than one could mine in a year of work. This is an excellent reference for all things British mystery in the years between the wars, and later.
