This is where I plan to track progress on my Detection Club bingo card. I created the card using The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books, written by Martin Edwards and published by the British Library Crime Classics imprint. Each square based upon the subject of the corresponding chapter, and the image is a detail from the cover of a book mentioned in the chapter.
