THE
CRIME CLUB

THIS trade-mark, in the minds of discriminating readers, has long been identified with the best in detective fiction. For many years the Crime Club has been steadily supplying an avid and ever increasing public.
Each month the Crime Club publishes one selected book, and two others, under the imprint of the gunman, for the entertainment of detection enthusiasts.
A glance at the partial list of Crime Club authors below will show that not only is the Crime Club unusual for its strong list of established authors, but that it also, more than any other organisation, works steadily to develop new and worth-while writers.
Crime Club books are not mere thrillers, they are restricted to works in which there is a definite crime problem, an honest detective process, with a credible and logical solution.
