Agatha Christie and

Dorothy L Sayers in London

  

 by Richard Burnip

 

How the two great Queens of Crime brought the metropolis to life in the 1920s and 30s and how Hercule Poirot and Lord Peter Wimsey found a home there. Both authors chronicled the rapidly-changing London of the 1920s and ‘30s, writing in the same genre but in radically different ways. They also had very particular views on where their characters should live and work; a revealing investigation in itself. Although Sayers gave up detective fiction, in Christie’s case, far from remaining fixed in one period throughout her long career, she charted the changes she witnessed, with her customary skill and insight, in later works such as Endless Night and At Bertram’s Hotel.
