SIX AGAINST SCOTLAND YARD

By Margery Allingham (Author) , Others (Author)

Pub Date: Dec. 4th, 1936
Publisher: Doubleday

Anthony Berkeley, Freeman Wills Croft, Father Ronald Knox, Dorothy Sayers, Russell Thorndike, in separate murder stories present the "perfect crime". Ex-Superintendent Cornish proceeds to demonstrate with each yarn why the killer would have been caught. Excellent fare for those who take detecting seriously, good yarns and Cornish's criticisms show up the weaknesses.
