I presume that the young Dorothy L Sayers is going to pop up at some point in the story, since Our Heroine went up to Somerville the year after DLS left...
Alas, when googling to make sure I had these titles right, I read that Baroness Rendell of Babergh suffered a stroke a month ago, though she is reportedly recovering...
I haven't seen many mentions of Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce series, but they are delightful murder mystery series about a young girl in 1950's Britain. I highly recommend them. The latest in that series came out very recently, but I would definitely begin at the beginning The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.
I also recently read The Anatomy of Death which is set in London in the early 20th century and features a crime-solving female pathologist. However, Felicity Young now lives in Australia so maybe this doesn't count as British crime fiction either but it was a great read.
Yesterday I completed a short book The Spectrum of English Murder: The Detective Fiction of Henry Lancelot Aubrey-Fletcher and G. D. H. and Margaret Cole by Curtis Evans about British writers, so now have more titles to find and add to the TBR list.
I have read one other of Staincliffe's novels, which was based on the TV series Scott and Bailey and look forward to reading more of this author's work.
