Whose Body?

by Dorothy L. Sayers

If you like old fashioned mysteries, it doesn't get much better than Sayers. I can't wait for more!

The Club of Queer Trades

by G.K. Chesterton

A great collection of quirky short stories, as good as or better than Chesterton's Father Brown ones. They don't write them like this any more.

A Book of Remarkable Criminals

by H.B. Irving

Fascinating book! The complete story of the Dr. Parkman/Prof. Webster murder, with details I never read anywhere else. Also, H. Holmes, the nineteenth century serial killer who operated a house of horrors in Chicago. He didn't confine his nefarious deeds to that city, by any means, and he was a con artist in addition to a killer. Many more murderers I'd never heard of.

Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys true crime books.
