Shedunnit


Aug 11, 2021

This summer, you can still travel to the murderous destinations visited by your favourite detectives.

While I take a holiday myself, please enjoy this classic episode of Shedunnit! First aired in July 2020, it's all about how and why golden age sleuths solve mysteries while away from home.

My new map and guide, Agatha Christie’s England, is available now in physical form at shedunnitshow.com/map or as an audiobook at shedunnitshow.com/audiomap.
