"Women of Mystery": Christie, Sayers, Highsmith, and French

Read novels by three women who are in the mystery writers’ hall of fame and a current author who has been praised as “one of the greatest crime novelists writing today.” We will discuss a classic Hercule Poirot case set in Egypt; a Lord Peter Wimsey mystery considered one of the highest among her masterpieces, featuring free love and a dubious omelet; a tale of the dark side of a utopian American suburb by one of the greatest “noir” mystery writers; and a new cosmopolitan American writer who specializes in Dublin Murders. Readings will be Agatha Christie, Death on the Nile; Dorothy L. Sayers, Strong Poison; Patricia Highsmith, Deep Water; and Tana French, In the Woods. Students should read Death on the Nile for the first class.
