Challenge Complete: The Vintage Cover Scavenger Hunt 2016

Successfully finished the Vintage Cover Scavenger Hunt 2016 hosted @ My Reader’s Block. Read 14 Golden Age Mysteries for the challenge.

1. A Town Scene: Murders in Praed Street by John Rhode

2. Hand Holding WeaponMystery at Greycombe Farm by John Rhode

Avoiding the original cover as that contains a spoiler

3. Clock/ Timepiece: Haunted Lady by Mary Roberts Rinehart

4. Skull: Death of My Aunt by C.H.B. Kitchin

5. Knife: The Great Tontine (Victorian Villainies) by Hawley Smart

The woman, with her ghostly pallor, seems more frightening.

6. Streetlamp (Chandelier/ Candle/ Etc.): Satyanveshi Vyomkesh by Sharadindu Bandopadhya

Thanks to Bev for allowing Streetlamp in this category

7. Just One Person; Death in the Wrong Room by Anthony Gilbert

8. Staircase: Before the Fact by Francis Illes

9.  Two People: Trent’s Last Case by E.C. Bentley

10. More than Two People: Epitaph for a Spy by Eric Ambler

11. Library or a Book: The Rome Express by Arthur Griffiths

12. A Brunette: Case for Three Detectives by Leo Bruce

13. Car/Truck: The Shakespeare Murders by A.G. Macdonell

  1. Thanks Margot but they were not deliberate choices. I just read them and then tried to find if there was an object on the cover that fitted the bill. Thank God, Bev gave us plenty to choose from.


  2. Case for Three Detectives is good both in its mystery and humour. I didn't like Trent's Last Case but others do like it a lot. Looking forward to your views on them.
