‘The Floating Admiral’, first published in 1931, is a mystery book with a difference. It was written collaboratively by members of the Detection Club, a society of writers that included many of the great crime authors of the day, such as Agatha Christie. The novel is now being lovingly re-released by London publishers the Folio Society. Editorial director Tom Walker joins the Weekly team to unpick the book’s enigmas.
