    • Oh….and the answers to the questions.

      1. I’d want to be Nancy Drew. Nancy was the first detective I met when I started reading. She’s smart and talented and…most importantly kind. But let’s be honest, the real reason I want to be Nancy is because I’ve always coveted her blue roadster.

      2. This is difficult. Only three? Okay: 1. The Celebrated Cases of Sherlock Holmes (anthology) –the first Holmes collection I ever owned and since it has nearly all of the Holmes stories it will have plenty to keep me occupied until help arrives. 2. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie –because even though I know the solution, it doesn’t matter how many times I read it, it still gives me a thrill of anticipation and I see new things that I missed the first time around. 3. Strong Poison by Dorothy L Sayers –another mystery that I can read repeatedly despite know the solution. Which is important when you’re stranded and can only have three books.

  1. If I could be any fictional detective I’d be Emma Graham from Martha Grimes Hotel Paradise books. I love her combination of innocence and wisdom. I relate to her even though she’s only 12 years old.

    Picking three novels for desert island?! Impossible! 😉 There’s an anthology of Agatha Christie novels that I’ve read that I loved. It had a novella set in ancient Egypt that was probably my favorite Christie story.

  2. 1) If I could be a fictional detective, I’d be Albert Campion (his pseudonym, since he’s a secretly a member of the aristocracy and his family frowns on his irregular work as a private detective)! He is charming and intelligent, and knows how to get himself out of scrapes. He’s also very wise, but he’s not as socially adept as one could wish, since his ‘best’ friends are mostly in the underworld, and so he lives directly next to the local police station as protection. A most interesting chap!

    2) Deciding on only 3 titles is excruciating, but the ones I have found most influential would include “Murder on the Orient Express,” Agatha Christie (1934); “Look to the Lady,” Margery Allingham (1931); and more recently, Caroline Graham’s “The Killings at Badger’s Drift” (1988).
