Let Marcia Talley , Agatha- and Anthony-winning author of the Hannah Ives mysteries, show you how to build a memorable, engaging detective. (Hint: It's not about making him flawless.) Others included are: Simon Brett, Hallie Ephron, Meg Gardiner, Peter James, Christopher G. Moore, Michael Sears , and many others. No other mystery-writing guide offers the road tested wisdom of so many award-winners and bestselling authors in one place.
