Bookmark of Spalding has selected The Detection Collection, by members of The Detective Club, as its book of the week.

The Detection Club represents the cream of British crime writing talent.

Established on the cusp of the Golden Age of detective fiction at the beginning of the 1930s, the club’s first president was G K Chesterton.

Since then the mantle of president has passed to some of the most significant names in the history of crime fiction, including Agatha Christie.

In this collection are contributions from some amazing crime writers.

There are stories of devilish cunning, as you would expect from the minds of Colin Dexter and P D James, lighter-hearted contributions from Lindsey Davis and Robert Goddard, corporate skulduggery from Michael Ridpath, a chilling character study from Clare Francis and many more.

The Detection Collection, the latest in a long tradition of highly collectable Detection Club anthologies, is a must for crime lovers everywhere.

Bookmark in Spalding is offering the book at £1 off the retail price of £7.99, with a further 20 per cent discount with the voucher in the Spalding Guardian of April 16.
