Murder Underground
by Mavis Doriel Hay

Synopsis:
If you were suddenly to be found murdered, would your friends have theories about who had done the deed? Well, when the wealthy and unpleasant Miss Pongleton meets her end on the stairs of Belsize Park underground station in Murder Underground, her housemates—though not particularly grieved—have plenty of guesses at the identity of her killer. While they’re merely airing theories, events arise that unexpectedly enable several of them, including Tuppy the terrier, to put them to the test.

This novel from the golden age of British crime fiction is sure to puzzle and charm fans of Dorothy L. Sayers, Agatha Christie, and Josephine Tey.

I've seen this series around a lot recently. It's not a series by the same author, but one of old crime novels that have been republished with similar vintage style covers – and I really like the look of them. The bookshop I work in stocks the Cornish Coast Murder, but the first time I saw this one was when I went into the Piccadilly branch in London earlier in the week.
It was an obvious choice for my Wishlist Wednesday this week, seeing as I'm still in London. Definitely going to have to get my hands on it at some point. But maybe I won't read it on the underground ...

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
