    This was published as a companion piece to the earlier "Murder Ink".

    This book is about mysteries written by women, especially during the golden age of mystery writing. I loved this book in my teens, must be more than 30 years ago now, maybe more. I wish I hadn't gotten rid of my copy. This book started me reading Dorothy Sayers, and other authors. Although oddly what I remember best is the chapter about norland nurses. Norland is a British agency that produces very superior nannies (as we Americans would say).
