This superb collection of new and previously unpublished crime stories celebrates 75 years of The Detection Club.

The Detection Club represents the cream of British crime writing talent. Appropriately for such a society, the precise date of the Club's founding is shrouded in mystery, but the Club was formalised with a constitution and rules in1932. Its first president was G.K. Chesterton, and since then the mantle of Presidency has passed to some of the most significant names in the history of crime fiction, including Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers and Julian Symonds. The Club meets three times a year, to dine, to plot and to exchange ideas.

This anthology includes twelve new stories by the best of British. The stellar line up includes Lindsey Davis, Robert Barnard, Colin Dexter, Robert Goddard, John Harvey, Reginald Hill, P.D. James, H.R.F. Keating, Peter Lovesey, Michael Ridpath, Margaret Yorke and Simon Brett, and the collection has been edited by Simon Brett. Among the authors are a number of bestsellers as well as winners of both Diamond and Gold Daggers. This outstanding collection will be a must with crime lovers everywhere.
