British mystery writer extraordinaire, Dame Agatha Christie (b. 9/15/1890) created intricate puzzles based on closed locations, interlocking cvlues and hidden motives. Match wits with Christie and other golden age of mystery favorites like Dorothy Sayers, Josephine Tey, Goerges Simonen, and Ngaio Marsh. Or try present day revivalists like Sophie Hannah and Kerry Greenwald.
On DVD, the golden age style is live and well in Maigret, Death in Paradise, Father Brown, Miss Fisher and Midsummer Murders.
