Completed - 2011 Vintage Mystery Challenge

This challenge is hosted at My Reader's Block by Bev Hankins.

2011 Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge Completed

Get a Clue Level: 7-9 books,
must have been written prior to 1960

My extra rule: all need to be by different authors 

Progress page on the challenge site
  1. 3.8, BEFORE MIDNIGHT, Rex Stout (1955)
  2. 4.4, GIDEON'S DAY, J.J. Marric (aka John Creasey) (1955)
  3. 4.2, AN ASSISTANT MURDERER, Dashiell Hammett  (1926)
  4. 3.6, X.Y.Z. A Detective Story, Anna Katherine Green (1883)
  5. 4.1, DEATH AT THE PRESIDENT'S LODGING, Michael Innes (1936)
  6. 4.3, DIED IN THE WOOL, Ngaio Marsh ( 1942)
  7. 4.5, DUMB WITNESS, Agatha Christie (1937)
  8. 4.4, MAIGRET & the MAN on the BOULEVARD, Georges Simenon (1953)
  9. 4.4, IN THE TEETH OF THE EVIDENCE, Dorothy L. Sayers (1939) 
Looking at the ratings I have given the books it is perhaps true to say that from my point of view most of them have faded a bit with time, although if they rate 4 and above they are really solid reads.

You'll notice too that I put a restriction of 9 individual authors on myself, so I have 11 Agatha Christie reads that don't appear here.
