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!

Anthony Berkeley: Murder in the Basement

This is middling Berkeley, not as problematic as The Wychford Poisoning Case or The Silk Stockings Murders, but OTOH also a fair way from the (mostly) enjoyable and intelligent writing that are The Poisoned Chocolates Case and Trial and Error. I rather like the setup — a body found by accident in a place where […]

Phoebe Atwood Taylor: The Cape Cod Mystery

The Appointment with Agatha group’s January 2022 side read: my first book by Atwood Taylor (though I’d heard her name before) and almost certainly not my last one. I’m not entirely sold on the main investigator, Asey Mayo; he comes across as rather too mannered and the book might have benefitted if the first person […]

Zora Neale Hurston: Dust Tracks on a Road

Definitely the best book I read during the first week of the new year; the New Yorker pretty much nailed it when calling the book “warm, witty, imaginative” and adding “This is a rich and winning book.” I’d (finally) read Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God last year; having now read her autobiography, I recongnize […]
