Okay, the results of the vote for your collective choice of the best individual novel by John Dickson Carr and Agatha Christie are in, and it’s now fixed which two need to be read for the head-to-head comparison that Brad and I have planned for April. So, after over 100 votes in each poll (though not a multiple of three in either case, despite having three votes per author…) counting down the top five, we have…
And the winners are..
Coming sometime in April 2017: how do He Who Whispers (1946) and Death on the Nile (1937) stack up? It’s already interesting to note that both are about the same distance into the careers of their authors — 16 years and 17 years respectively: maybe that’s the golden age of a writing career, hmmm?
Okay, get reading, and we’ll see you for this in a couple of months…full spoilers, remember — be prepared!
