While he did include an example from Sayers in his list of unlikely murder methods, the book Chandler really pooh-poohs is AA Milne's Red House Mystery, which he rips apart at length. I've often wondered why he chose that book as his primary example. Was Milne's book really that big? Why didn't he choose a Sayers novel as his scapegoat if he was responding directly to her?
