“Corpse” – the essential ingredient in vintage murder mysteries

Here’s our latest video – a salute to vintage murder mysteries. “Corpse” is not the sweetest word in the dictionary but it is very functional. It describes quite clearly that the living thing is no more (an ex-human as the Monty Python folks might say).  And that’s why crime writers adore the word ‘corpse’. It has been incorporated into dozens and dozens of murder mysteries over the years. We found more than 100 book titles that included the word ‘corpse’ but there were many more.
