The Trivia Team is given a list of five fictional detectives and five authors and asked to match them up based on the author that penned each of the characters’ stories. There are a few well-known pairings that stick out to the Team, but in appropriately suspenseful fashion, several of the pairings present more of a mystery. Can you help them nail the order perfectly to snag the points for the Final Question? Listen in and see if we can crack the case together!
