Ten greatest (male) detective novels

Shame on David Montgomery! He’s a great book reviewer, but he’s finally come up with his list of ten best detective novels ever, after much discussion and debate on his blog, and there are no women authors in the list!
Take a look if you don’t believe me.

I made various suggestions to David Montgomery in his comments, along the lines of Christie, Sayers, Allingham, James (PD), Slaughter, Higgins Clark (M) and others…surely it couldn’t be that hard?

How about trying to put together a list of the 10 best detective novels written by women? Suggestions in the comments — please. I’d like to give David a run for his money.

Suffragettes continued at Oasis

In the comments to my recent post on the suffragettes, several readers have asked me the reason(s) for Cathy’s disapproval of the movement. She’s now replied in a post on her own blog, Oasis. Please go to the link and read her argument; she would love to read your responses in her comments. I, too, am looking forward to your views on her views (this is getting rather nested).
