The poisoned chocolates case by Anthony Berkeley( Book )
58 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 396 libraries worldwide
Sir Eustace is a cad of the first water, with a specialty in other men's wives, and the list of people who might want to do him in could fill a London phone book. But which of them actually sent the chocolates with their nasty hidden payload? Scotland Yard is baffled. Enter the Crime Circle, a group of society intellectuals with a shared conviction in their ability to succeed where the police have failed. Eventually, each member will produce a tightly reasoned solution to the Case of the Poisoned Chocolates, but each of those solutions will identify a different murderer. First published in 1929, this is both a classic of the golden age of mystery fiction, and one of the great puzzle-mysteries of all time
Malice aforethought : the story of a commonplace crime by Anthony Berkeley( Book )
24 editions published between 1931 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 217 libraries worldwide
On a balmy summer's day in 1930 the great and the good of the county are out in force for the annual, much-anticipated tennis party at the Bickleighs, although not everyone has much enthusiasm for the game. The tennis party exists for other reasons - and charmingly mannered infidelity is now the most popular pastime in the small but exclusive Devonshire hamlet of Wyvern's Cross. Which is why, in his own garden, the host, Dr Edmund Bickleigh, is desperately fighting to conceal the two things on his mind: a mounting passion for Gwynfryd Rattery - and the certain conviction that he is going to kill his wife
Trial and error by Anthony Berkeley( Book )
54 editions published between 1937 and 2010 in 9 languages and held by 213 libraries worldwide
"'She ought to be shot!' These words suddenly took on new meaning to the fatally ill Mr. Todhunter. He was searching for the most unscrupulous person he could find, and the beautiful actress Jean Norwood seemed to fit the bill. She was notoriously amoral, ruthlessly ambitious, greedy, and conniving. Everyone seemed to agree -- her miserable manager, the victimized young starlet, her bankrupt married lover, and his desperate, deserted wife -- all their lives had been ruined by Jean Norwood and each of them would be happy to see her dead. Mr Todhunter intended to oblige them"--Preliminary page
The Floating admiral by Agatha Christie( Book )
4 editions published between 1931 and 2011 in English and held by 187 libraries worldwide
"It was a typical foggy day when the members of the world-famous Detection Club gathered at the club's London headquarters. Each contributor tackled the mystery presented without knowing what solution the previous authors had in mind. For the first time in history, the creators of Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, Lord Peter Wimsey, and Father Brown all applied their expertise to the same case. The result-the unique classic that you are about to read!"--BOOK COVER
Ask a policeman by POLICEMAN( Book )
13 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in English and held by 171 libraries worldwide
This new edition, which is reproduced from a first printing of the book, is introduced by the author Martin Edwards, archivist of the Detection Club, and includes a never-before-published Preface by Agatha Christie, 'Detective Writers in England', in which she discusses her fellow writers in the Detection Club. Lord Comstock is a barbarous newspaper tycoon with enemies in high places. His murder in the study of his country house poses a dilemma for the Home Secretary. In the hours before his death, Lord Comstock's visitors included the government Chief Whip, an Archbishop, and the Assistant Commissioner for Scotland Yard. Suspicion falls upon them all and threatens the impartiality of any police investigation. Abandoning protocol, the Home Secretary invites four famous detectives to solve the case: Mrs Adela Bradley, Sir John Saumarez, Lord Peter Wimsey, and Mr Roger Sheringham. All are different, all are plausible, all are on their own - and none of them can ask a policeman...This classic whodunit adopted a completely new approach: Milward Kennedy proposed the title, John Rhode plotted the murder and provided the suspects, and four of their contemporaries were asked to lend their well-known detectives to the task of providing solutions to the crime. But there was to be another twist: the authors would swap detectives and use the characters in their sections of the book. Thus Gladys Mitchell and Helen Simpson swapped Mrs Bradley and Sir John Saumarez, and Dorothy Sayers and Anthony Berkeley swapped Lord Peter Wimsey and Roger Sheringham, enabling the authors to indulge in skilful and sly parodies of each other

"Lina Aysgarth had lived with her husband for nearly eight years before she realized that she was married to a murderer ... It did seem a pity that she had to die, when she would have liked so much to live"--P. [4] of cover
