  •  follow-up to last week's MMM... (5+ / 0-)

    Last week Susan's Monday Murder Mystery focused on mysteries set during World War II.

    When I read the diary I realized that one of my favorite  series set during WW II was not mentioned. Rather than mention it in a comment in the diary, I used it as the solution to last Friday's Sunday Puzzle.

    I'm not going to identify the series in this comment, because that would spoil the puzzle for those of you who might like to try your hand at solving it.  But the puzzle has been solved, so you can find the name of the series, and a comment from me about the series, over in that diary. (Set comments to SHRINK or HIDE if you want to work the puzzle for yourself.) It's a very entertaining series, well-loved by many of us lucky enough to have found copies of the books -- well worth reading if you haven't read it before, worth reading again if you have.  )

    Of the people who know about the series, many probably think there are only 3 books in the series -- because that was true for many years. Other, more knowledgeable people may think there are 4 books in the series. Actually (alas) there are only 3 and a fraction (as I explain in my comment in that diary).

    Also: this is Mystery Month in Sunday Puzzle Warm-Up, and this past Saturday's diary spotlighted a classic mystery from the 1940s by a brilliant writer who is, unfortunately, not as well known nowadays as she should be.  The warm-up diaries feature fairly easy puzzles, so if you'd like to try your hand at solving the puzzle (and either being reminded of a classic mystery, or discovering it for the first time) I encourage you to visit that diary.

    I'll be spotlighting great mysteries all of May (and likely a good part of June)in the Sunday Puzzle Warm-Up series, so if you'd like to come by, solve the puzzles, and discuss the books which are spotlighted we'd love to have you.

    9 out of 10 of Republicans have never visited Sunday Puzzle
