  1. As ever this was very sneaky and I wasn’t ready miss! Very proud of my 80% today.

  2. Not great, I’m afraid. 60%. Still, it was fun!

  3. Just 70% this time, showing what a sober person I must be! 😉

  4. Col

    9/10 for me, off for a pint to celebrate!

    Look at me, getting 90% on all this modern crime lark. Shame I can’t rememebr anything useful, really…

  6. Fun – I aced this with a stunning 60% 🙂

  7. Margot: Home today with a cold this quiz brightened my day especially when I was 10/10. I guess I spend more time in literary pubs than I realized.

    • I’m so sorry to hear that you’re sick, Bill. I just got over a fierce cold, myself, so I feel your pain… At any rate, you did brilliantly!! Excellent! I’m very impressed.

  8. Hey 80% – I just love pub settings incorpoated into mystery stories. And I’m with Col, going to my local to soak up some atmosphere & celebrate – heh heh

    Got 10 out of 10 — and the wonder is I don’t even drink. So, off to celebrate with a glass of seltzer.
    However, I would love a good pub down the block nevertheless.

  10. I love your quizzes Margot, even when I don’t do so well – and this time I got 90% – and I don;t even drink 🙂

  11. Margot, I got 5/5 of which I knew the answers to four and one was guesswork. I enjoy your quizzes too though I wish I had read crime fiction more widely.

  12. I got them all right! I hope that means I spend too much time reading crime fiction rather than too much time in the pub…

  13. Should I be worried that I scored 100% on this quiz? Must review my drinking habits…

    • Oh, that’s brilliant, Marina Sofia! Quite impressive! I think it says nothing about your drinking – more about your deep knowledge of crime fiction and ability to remember it.

    90% score! I think that’s a rare one for your quizzes for me, still the *snoopy dance* Like everyone else, I love your quizzes.

  15. Sob! My iPad won’t let me access this one Margot. I will have to save it until I get home again.

What's your view? I'd love to hear it.
