For anybody wishing to take part in another challenge this month, the year (chosen by Moira from Clothes in Books) is 1939. To quote Winston Churchill from that year:
We must not underrate the gravity of the task which lies before us or the temerity of the ordeal, to which we shall not be found unequal. We must expect many disappointments, and many unpleasant surprises, but we may be sure that the task which we have freely accepted is one not beyond the compass and the strength of the crime blogging community.
All you have to do is review a crime novel/story/film first published in 1939, and make sure you tell me about it somehow. Then at the end of the month, I’ll fashion a post bringing them all together.
