Product Description
British Mysteries: Authors and Sleuths; A Quiz Deck
From Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, Dorothy Sayers’s Peter Wimsey to Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse, British mystery authors and their detectives have intrigued readers worldwide for more than a century. In the 1920s and 1930s, what many consider the typical British mystery was in vogue: a quiet country village; murder most foul; a clever, genteel sleuth; and a sometimes startling denouement—often told in a lighthearted tone. Fast-forward to the 1960s and enter the complex, brooding inspector, courtesy of such authors as P. D. James. No bons mots for these crime solvers—they prefer a bit of angst with their murders.

This quiz deck of 48 cards will challenge the knowledge of every British mystery lover. From the earliest forensics-based tales of R. Austin Freeman to the witty gems of the Golden Age to the darker socially aware novels of today, see how many mysteries you can solve. Happy sleuthing!
