This Deadly Isle
Running the length and breadth of the British Isles, this illustrated map and guide plots 51 real-life locations from books and stories from the Golden Age Of Detective Fiction – the period roughly between the end of the first world war and the end of the second. The titans of the genre are represented here – Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, Dorothy L Sayers, Ngaio Marsh, Anthony Berkeley – along with many less-heralded authors.
This Deadly Isle charts puzzling murders, strange disappearances and devilish mysteries from the Home Counties to the Hebrides, all painstakingly documented in a map redolent of the era. Written and researched by crime novelist, critic and historian Martin Edwards, This Deadly Isle reveals the variety of settings into which the genre was adapted and the vast number of stories written, many of them still little known.
