Take the Detective Quizzes

Check your detective novel/author knowledge...

Surely you can do better than I did!  50%    : (

Or, take a quiz on one of your favorite authors!  I took the Michael Connelly Quiz....and scored 100%!

How'd you do?

Oh- some other cool links...

  1. The ghost of Sherlock Holmes wouldn't let me embarass the detective community by taking the quiz! See you

  2. Sorry about the brevity of my last comment but I work as a blood courier -- and the phone rang for me to do a blood run.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and following. That means a lot to me. When the hospitals give me more free time, I will read your back posts.

    Right now, the phone is ringing again. Life for a blood courier is never dull! Roland

  3. Those were fun - I didn't do well on the first one, but did much better on my fave authors' quizzes. :)

  4. I don't think I would do well at that one.
    Michele, did you know the html code for your button covers part of your post?

  5. Roland- I know about those ghosts...
    and Roland- Sounds like a great premise for a book! Go save a life.

    Jemi- I think picking your favorite author helps. :)

    Alex- I need to cater to you more! And I think it depends on your computer. My laptop has a wide screen and it doesn't, and my work computer also has a wide flatscreen, and it doesn't here either...but it's something for me to think about. Thanks for the tip!

  6. I want to try some of those quizzes. They look fascinating. Thanks for this.
