New recommendations for 2016 Conference

If, like me, you’re looking forward to the Bodies From The Library 2016 Conference, you may want to get hold of copies of the speakers’ recommendations of Golden Age Detective Fiction to make sure you get the most out of your day. The list has been compiled to give you a selection of the key works by authors who will be covered during the day’s programme. I’ve already reserved copies of several of the books from the library service in Bristol and they’re being shipped in from all parts of the South West region. (Don’t you just love the library service!)
