They knew how to write: Golden Age Locked Room Mysteries

#GoldenAgeLockedRoomMysteries #NetGalley

Otto Penzler is the owner of one of the best mystery bookshops. It is located in New York City. However, those who live elsewhere can benefit from his curating as this excellent collection demonstrates.

Read stories by those who made the “Golden Age” golden. Some of the authors offering treats to readers in this collection include John Dickson Carr, Ellery Queen and Earl Stanley Gardner. What they have in common is the convention of the ‘locked room.”

I often think of the Golden Age as British. Here though the Americans are at work.

Lovers of classic short stories may want to give this book a look.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Penzler Press for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
