Corpse Ahoy!

The Floating Admiral - Canon Victor Whitechurch, Agatha Christie, Milward Kennedy, Margaret Cole, Henry Wade, Clemence Dane, John Rhode, Anthony Berkeley, Freeman Wills Crofts, Edgar Jepson, Ronald Knox, Dorothy L. Sayers, G.D.H. Cole, G.K. Chesterton

Just a quick note to say that I have started The Floating Admiral for our buddy read this lunchtime.

I have skipped the Introductions etc. and have jumped in right at Chesterton's Prologue - which I liked a lot.

It had all the snark of Chesterton and all the atmosphere of an old Mr Moto movie, which I am sure will come with some a hefty dose of eye-rolling at some point, too. Or at least a reminder to some of the abysmal aspects of The Big Four.

"We talk of the mystery of Asia; and there is a sense in which we are all wrong."
