About the authors
Margery Allingham (1904–66) was one of the leading
English crime writers of the period between the two World
Wars. In 1927, after various failed attempts at writing for the theatre, she wrote her first detective story as an ‘escape into the Mystery’, and continued writing in the genre for the rest her life. She famously described the mystery novel as a box with four sides – ‘a Killing, a Mystery, an Enquiry and a Conclusion with an element of satisfaction in it.’
Sue Grafton (born 1940) is a popular American writer of crime fiction.
