"In 1931, Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers and ten other crime writers from the newly-formed 'Detection Club' collaborated in publishing a unique crime novel. In a literary game of consequences, each author would write one chapter, leaving G.K. Chesterton to write a typically paradoxical prologue and Anthony Berkeley to tie up all the loose ends. In addition, each of the authors provided their own solution in a sealed envelope, all of which appeared at the end of the book, with Agatha Christie's ingenious conclusion acknowledged at the time to be 'enough to make the book worth buying on its own'. The authors of this novel are: G. K. Chesterton, Canon Victor Whitechurch, G. D. H. Cole and Margaret Cole, Henry Wade, Agatha Christie, John Rhode, Milward Kennedy, Dorothy L. Sayers, Ronald Knox, Freeman Wills Crofts, Edgar Jepson, Clemence Dane and Anthony Berkeley."-- Publisher description

Ask a policeman by Helen Simpson( Book )

5 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lord Comstock is a barbarous newspaper tycoon with enemies in high places. His murder poses a dilemma for the Home Secretary: with suspicion falling on the Chief Whip, an Archbishop, and the Assistant Commissioner for Scotland Yard, the impartiality of any police investigation is threatened. Abandoning protocol, he invites four famous detectives to solve the case: Mrs Adela Bradley, Sir John Saumarez, Lord Peter Wimsey, and Mr Roger Sheringham. All are on their own--and none of them can ask a policeman. This unique whodunit involved four of the 1930's best crime writers swapping their usual detectives and indulging in sly parodies of each other. It is introduced by Martin Edwards, and includes an exclusive preface by Agatha Christie, 'Detective Writers in England', in which she discusses Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, and her Detection Club colleagues."--Back cover

Death at breakfast; a Dr. Priestley mystery by John Rhode( Book )

16 editions published between 1936 and 2018 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At eight o'clock in the morning breakfast was set in the dining room of 8 Matfield Street, the home of Victor Harleston and his sister Janet. But no sooner had Victor Harleston sipped his coffee than his agonised expression and spasmodic twitching conveyed all too clearly that he had been poisoned. When Dr Oldland arrived, he saw that the case was hopeless and called the Yard. Even though, at this early stage, the death of Victor Harleston was surrounded by suspicious circumstances, it was impossible to guess at the extreme ingenuity with which the criminal had carried out his dastardly plan. Despite an almost complete absence of clues, the circumstances were so suspicious that Inspector Hanslet soon referred the evidence to his friend and mentor, Dr Lancelot Priestley, whose deductions revealed a diabolically ingenious murder that would require equally fiendish ingenuity to solve."--Cover
