Congratulations to Carol McBride and Jamie Sherwin who have won the two prizes of tickets to next years Bodies From The Library conference in the competition jointly sponsored with HarperCollins.
They correctly guessed the solution to the question set by Tony Medawar which required them to identify correctly the author of one of the stories, included in the third Bodies From The Library collection of rare and little known short stories by leading writers of the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, which goes on sale tomorrow, based on the opening sentence:
“Adrian Belford, emerging from the offices of Messrs Golding & Moss, Financiers, hesitated uncertainly at the corner of Conduit Street and Bond Street.”
The correct solution is Dorothy L. Sayers, whose short story The House of The Poplars, is one one of the many highlights of the collection.
Other authors whose works feature in Bodies From The Library 3 are:
John Dickson Carr
William A. R. Collins
Christopher St John Sprigg
Ethel Lina White
Well done to the winners! I wonder if they had superior knowledge or superior guessing powers! I certainly intend to be at next year’s conference even though I do have to buy a ticket 🙂
It was a lucky guess, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Really looking forward to it!
