Motives for Murder 

By Various Authors

Paperback – 8 November 2016
For fans of crime and mystery comes an anthology by some of the best-known practitioners of the genre.
The Detection Club was founded by the creme de la crime of British crime writing in 1930 and its members included Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Anthony Berkeley and the Club’s first president, G. K. Chesterton. The Detection Club was a way for crime writers to get together, socialise and discuss ideas, a tradition that continues to this day.
Edited by current Detection Club President, Martin Edwards, MOTIVES FOR MURDER introduces new stories by members of the Club – some of the best crime writers in the business today – in honour of multi-award-winning author, Peter Lovesey.
