Lazy Sunday Service

I'm having a golden age of crime fiction weekend.  Yesterday I read The Moving Toyshop by Edmund Crispin (1946) and today I've made a start on Death in the Clouds by Agatha Christie (1935).  Both are tightly plotted, witty, and all show and no tell.  A lot to be learnt on that front by some contemporary writers, I feel.
