S2 Ep 1: Queens of Crime and the Golden Age of Detective Fiction

Welcome to Season 2! This season we are taking a look at four excellent female writers from the Golden Age of Detective Fiction: Ngaio Marsh, Josephine Tey, Margery Allingham, and Dorothy L. Sayers.

These authors were writing fiercely intelligent, wonderfully witty, and extraordinarily astute mystery novels in the 1920s and 1930s. Join us for a romp through the Golden Age, feminist-style!

Clockwise from top left: Dorothy L. Sayers, Josephine Tey, Margery Allingham, and Ngaio Marsh.
