My Final Two Detection Club Bingo Reads

My final two Detection Club bingo squares are Playing Politics and Singletons.  (Yey!!  Almost done!) 

For the first of these squares, I will be re-reading Ngaio Marsh’s Nursing Home Murder — not my favorite book by Marsh, but I have it on hand, I’m in the process of reworking my way through Marsh’s Inspector Alleyn mysteries anyway, and it is not merely one of the books mentioned in chapter 12 of Martin Edwards’s Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books (which would be enough to qualify for this bingo square), but it is even one of the 100 books specifically presented.

For my final bingo square, I will be reading / listening to Ellen Wilkinson’s Division Bell Mystery — also one of Martin Edward’s 100 presented books (this one, in chapter 21).  This one comes highly recommended by several friends in whose opinions I trust, most recently here on BookLikes by Tigus, and I am looking forward t it a lot.  It would be great if I could finish Detection Club Bingo on a high!

(Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
