Challenge Complete: Criminal Plots II

This year I've been so hard-pressed for time that at times I haven't been able to post even wrap-up posts. Here's one challenge that I completed months back but could not do this final wrap-up post. Well, better late than never.

Criminal Plots II



Here are the books read in the various categories:

1. Novel with a weapon in the title: The Eight of Swords by John Dickson Carr

2. Book published at least 10 years ago: The Story of Ivy by Belloc Lowndes (1928)

3. Book written by an author from the state/ province where you live: The Englishman's Cameo by Madhulika Liddle

(The author lives in Delhi, the city I too stay).

4. Book written by an author using a penname: The Beast must Die by Nicholas Blake

Blake's real name is Cecil Day-Lewis

5. Crime novel whose protagonist is the opposite gender of the author: The Crime at Black Dudley by Margery Allingham

Allingham's protagonist is Albert Campion



6. A stand-alone novel written by an author who writes atleast one series: The Night Exercise by John Rhode

Rhode is more known for his series of detective novels featuring the forensic scientist Dr. Priestly.

This was an extremely interesting challenge and if Jen decides to host it again I am game for it.

  1. Yay! This is fantastic! I was thinking I wouldn't do the challenge again, but so many people have asked about it that I'm going to go ahead and put it together. Should be up soon. Stay tuned.

    Thanks for participating.
