At Your Service ;-)

Hello, All,

Just as a reminder that it's never entirely safe to visit my blog ;-), here's another quiz.

We all know that sleuths depend on their sidekicks and assistants for a lot, whether they admit it or not ;-). And of course, since you're a crime fiction fan, you know who all of those sidekicks are, don't you? Or do you?





Take this handy quiz and find out. Click the bell below to get started.... if you dare ;-). At the very end of the quiz, you can look through all of your answers and see which ones you got correct. Ready? Let's go!

  2. I enjoy them too, even when I don't pass them, though this time I managed a pass mark.

  3. Bernadette - Thanks :-). I really am glad you like them. And I'm not surprised that you passed - you know your stuff...

  4. First of all I can't believe I willingly took a test when I'm shite at them and an adult who doesn't have to! And I never passed though I think a 60 was pretty darn good for mostly guessing - I only knew for sure the answers to the Peter Wimsey one and the Daziel one so......ah well, you know I'll be back.

  5. Jan - I think you did quite well for not having had the chance to prepare and as you say, for not needing to do it and guessing :-). Glad you had a good time with it and I'm glad you'll be back :-).

  6. Cool quiz, Margot! Thanks for sharing it with us. A mystery isn't a mystery without a great sidekick. :)

  7. I failed miserably. But, I don't read many mysteries that aren't set in England. However, thanks to Dorte, I'm trying to read more international mysteries so maybe I will do better next time.

  8. Elizabeth - Thanks :-). I like the way you think: sidekicks add so much to a good story, don't they?



    Clarissa - Dorte's Global Reading Challenge is such a great way to learn about books from all over the world, isn't it? I'm glad you're enjoying it! And there is no such thing as failing this kind of quiz - if you enjoyed it, you didn't fail.

  9. Well, that showed me just how many new writers I still have to investigate. I actually scored rather well, but some of them were simply lucky guesses!

  10. Great quiz, Margot, especially as I was thrilled to score 90 per cent! (Only one guess, which was wrong.) Thanks for the fun.

  11. Annie - So glad you scored well :-). And I think we all have lots of new writers to "meet." That, to me, is one of the joys of crime fiction. There is always so much more you can read, and such a variety.



    Maxine - Well-done! And thanks for the kind words :-). I'm not surprised you scored well, as well-read and smart as you are. I'll have to tweak the next one to give you a real challenge ;-).

  12. I'm always so terrible at these quizzes, but enjoy them so much. It's a fun way to find new facts about books I should be reading. Looking forward to your next quiz.

  13. Mason - Glad you enjoyed the quiz. I think the thing about crime fiction is that there's just so much good stuff out that there it's impossible to read it all!
