A unique anthology for crime aficionados – six ‘perfect murder’ stories written by the most accomplished crime writers of the 1930s, designed to fox real-life Scotland Yard Superintendent Cornish, who comments on whether or not these crimes could have genuinely been solved. Is the ‘perfect murder’ possible? Can that crime be committed with such consummate care, with such exacting skill, that it is unsolvable – even to the most astute investigator? In this unique collection, legendary crime writers Margery Allingham, Anthony Berkeley, Freeman Wills Crofts, Ronald Knox, Dorothy L. Sayers and Russell Thorndike each attempt to create the unsolvable murder, which Superintendent Cornish of the CID then attempts to unravel… This clever literary battle of wits from the archives of the Detection Club follows The Floating Admiral and Ask a Policeman back into print after more than 75 years, and shows some of the experts from the Golden Age of detective fiction at their most ingenious. For true crime aficionados, this new edition includes an essay by Agatha Christie, one of the inaugural members of the Detection Club. Unseen since 1929, her article discusses the infamous Croydon Poisonings, a real-life perfect murder, the solution to which remains a mystery to this day…Show more

Poirot must use his unusual methods and his singular charm to solve the murder of the rich, elderly Emily Inglethorpe.

“Man is an unoriginal animal. Unoriginal within the law in his daily respectable life, equally unoriginal outside the law. If a man commits a crime, any other crime he commits will resemble it closely.” Hercule Poirot is the greatest detective in the world and has the uncanny ability to solve complex cases with only small clues and details to follow. Poirot and his companion Arthur Hastings travel to meet with a client in France, but upon arriving learn that he was murdered just the evening before. He had been hastily buried in a golf course after being murdered, and very few clues exist to explain what may have happened. Poirot sets about investigating the mystery, uncovering evidence of illicit affairs between people of interest in the case, evidence of other dastardly crimes, and finds reasons to suspect many of the people in his client’s life. He even turns to history and studies similar cases with similar motivations to further understand the tangled web of intrigue surrounding the situation, but with every step, the mystery seems to get more complicated. Like every Hercule Poirot mystery, The Murder on the Links is a twisting and exciting unraveling of clues that is sure to keep you guessing until the final moments. This mystery is the second to include Hercule Poirot and one of Agatha Christie’s masterpieces. The novel billed as “a godsend to hardened readers of fiction” by the Illustrated London News upon its publication.Show more
