 The Golden Age of Murder


 Martin Edwards


 [The speaker is a locally-based lawyer who has earned distinction in every field of crime fiction.  He is currently Chairman of the Crime Writers’ Association and President of the Detection Club.  He will discuss the crime fiction of the golden age between the wars, not cosy escapist cliché as some claim, but a substantial body of literature, a transmutation of real criminal cases, of the stresses in the authors’ lives and an urge to come to terms with the senseless carnage of the trenches.]
