About the Author:

"The Detection Club is a private association of writers of detective fiction in Great Britain, existing chiefly for the purpose of eating dinners together at suitable intervals and of talking illimitable shop ... Its membership is confined to those who have written genuine detective stories (not adventure tales or `thrillers') and election is secured by a vote of the club on recommendation by two or more members, and involves the undertaking of an oath." Dorothy L. Sayers

From Booklist:

The UK's invitation-only Detection Club boasts the cream of British crime writers; its early members included Agatha Christie, G. K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, and John Dickson Carr (the only American ever to be awarded membership). In celebration of the club's seventy-fifth anniversary, its current president, Simon Brett (of the Charles Paris, Mrs. Pargeter, and Fethering series), has assembled 11 never-before-published stories from current members P. D. James, Robert Barnard, Colin Dexter, Reginald Hill, and H. R. F. Keating, among others. Besides the star power, this collection offers an impressive range of stories. Readers can move, for example, from the paranoia induced by the cruel games of corporate role-playing in Michael Ridpath's "Partnership Track" to Clare Francis' devastating character study, "The Holiday," to P. D. James' knockout account of obsession, "The Part-Time Job." Brett provides an introduction to the stories and an urbane account of the Detection Club's history. A quality anthology for fans of the crime short story. Connie Fletcher
