Hi, Peter. Great to meet you and welcome to the group. I'm a huge fan of Christie and love traditional mysteries. I really like Edgar Allan Poe! Must give Gardner a read one of these days.

Welcome to the group, Peter. I'm slowly collecting the Agatha Christie books, love all of the various TV iterations of the series. Have you tried Ngaio Marsh or Dorothy Sayers?

Peter Reynard (peterreynard) | 4 comments Thanks everyone.

@Kyle: I have only read a couple of Poe's. I have a collection of short stories sitting on my shelf right now and I think I'll get to it next.

@Bill: Sweet. Another collector! I have only seen the David Suchet Poirot TV series. And after Suchet it is hard to even consider anyone else playing Poirot. I have read one or two books each by Marsh and Sayers. I keep meaning to read more but never get around to it.

I've read a couple of Margery Allingham's Campion books and enjoyed them. I bought two more today at our local Rotary Club Booksale, Dancers in Mourning and The Allingham Minibus.
