In 1930, Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Freeman Wills Crofts, G. K. Chesterton, E. C. Bentley, and several other popular British mystery writers formed the Detection Club. Part social club, part writing support group, the Club and its members created and popularized mystery writing as we know it today, the novelists' work fueled by real criminal cases, keen imaginations - and the dramas unfolding in their personal lives. In this page-turning compendium, novelist and acting president of the Detection Club (yes, it still exists!), Martin Edwards, explores "the mystery of the writers who invented the modern detective story," assembling a collection of fascinating minibiographies of the Club's early members. If you love a head-scratching classic mystery (or a juicy celebrity scandal!), you'll revel in The Golden Age of Murder! (KG)
