Quiz of the Month – February 2018

Mysteries are popular with just about everyone – and have been for a long, long time.  This quiz will test your knowledge of the genre by challenging you to guess the authors of the novels and short stories listed below, and to name the sleuth or sleuths featured in each.  The names of the sleuths will appear in parentheses after the authors’ names.  We’ll begin with some simple examples and then progress to more difficult works.  You get extra credit if you can answer the final entry – without cheating.  I’ll tell you more about it in my next post.

As always, the answers appear on my Quiz Answers page.
