Dorothy and Agatha by Gaylord Larsen

First copyrighted in 1990, Dorothy and Agatha is hardly a new release. Even so, if you can scrounge up a copy I recommend it. Author, Gaylord Larsen crafted a cozy mystery, involving well-loved mystery writers Dorothy L. Sayers and Agatha Christie.

When a dead body turns up in Dorothy’s dining room and no one can say who he is, she needs help. But being Dorothy she would never ask for it. Never fear, her friends of the Detection Club step in. Unfortunately, Dorothy has secrets she would prefer to remain hidden. Agatha Christie, the puzzle maker, is the only one who dares Dorothy’s wrath and continues to investigate.

The result is a puzzle reminiscent of the great Christie herself. I thoroughly enjoyed the tale, and the “twist” ending.
