Good overview of the leading authors from the golden age of detective novels, 1930s-50s. I enjoyed some selections much more than others. Five stars for Raymond Chandler and Ngaio Marsh. Both short novels were beautifully written and atmospheric. Agatha Christie never disappoints. Stanley Elkins dark comedy was fun too. By comparison, a lot of the other stories felt dated and contrived. I was underwhelmed by McBain and Rex Stout, considering their reputations.

Nero Wolfes misogyny is not as cute as he thinks it is.
