This Month: Favorite Detectives
Who is your favorite detective? Why do we like detective novels and films? There is the fictional Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Doctor Watson. Monsieur Poirot? Father Brown? Charlie Chan? Nick and Nora Charles from The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett or his other character Sam Spade. Remember Jessica Fletcher played by actress Angela Lansbury in the popular TV series Murder, She Wrote. Sue Grafton popularized Kinsey Millhone in her alphabet series. And there is Helter Skelter, a 1974 book by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry. Bugliosi served as prosecutor in the 1970 trial of Charles Manson. Come and share your favorite whodunit.
