Each month we will meet to seek to solve the mystery of why the detectives of the Detectives’ Club (and their authors ) continue to interest and enthrall us. We will look at some of the rich history of detective fiction; how its authors and their detectives respond to the pressures of their times; as well as at some of the cinematic adaptions of their work.
1. Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes – A Study in Scarlet (1887)
2. Raymond Chandler and Philip Marlowe – The Big Sleep (1939)
3. Georges Simenon and Inspector Maigret – Maigret Takes a Room (1951)
4. Lee Child and Jack Reacher – Gone Tomorrow (2009)
5. Robert Galbraith and Cormoran Strike – Troubled Blood (2021)
