I've found a series of books - the Jack Haldean Mysteries - that has completely ensnared me.
They're by Dolores Gordon-Smith & chronicle the adventures of Major Jack Haldean: a former WW1 flying ace turned detective novelist & solver of real life murders. They're set in the 20s & are very much in the style of Dorothy L Sayers, etc. Major Jack isn't Lord Peter, of course (but, who is?) but he's a damned good sort, don'cha know & comes complete with tortured wartime back story & fast car. *g*

The first book (A Fete Worse Than Death) is good but the subsequent stories are even better & contain some really clever plots.

So, if you fancy a ripping yarn then do give 'em a shot.
