And Then There Were Four

Readers have finally narrowed down the list of 64 nominees in Jen Forbus’ “World’s Favorite Detective” tournament to just four: Harry Bosch, Sherlock Holmes, Philip Marlowe, and Hercule Poirot. Eliminated in the last round were Lincoln Rhyme, Elvis Cole, Dave Robicheaux, and--saddest of all, from my perspective--Sam Spade. Monday will bring the penultimate round in this popularity contest, when the competition will be cut down to only two rivals. I can already tell you that my votes are going to Marlowe and Holmes. No question. Click here tomorrow to cast your own ballot.
