  1. Sadly, the going rate for the rarer detective fiction seems to be gravity defying. I found Cat and Mouse for £11 on Amazon and Spotted Cat for £24 plus £17 p&p on Abebooks. There must be scope for new editions at profit-making prices for the publishers but less eye-watering for us as readers.


    • It’s a shame that these are the recommended titles – could the speakers perhaps focus on the more findable titles? Most of the rest are more attainable. This has been a problem before – Mist On The Salting (before it appeared on ebooks) and Burton’s Death Of Two Brothers spring to mind
