That is the L-line completed

L1 “Read one book set in the Entertainment World” – Edmund Crispin – Frequent Hearses (1950)
L2 “One Book that has been made into a Movie or TV Show” – Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders (aka The Alphabet Murders) (1936)
L3 “Read One Book with an Amateur Detective” – Edmund Crispin – The Moving Toyshop (1946)
L4 “Read one book with a man in the Title” – Margery Allingham – The Case of the Late Pig (1937)
L5 “Read One Academic Mystery” – Dorothy L. Sayers – Gaudy Night (1935)
L6 “Read one book that involves a mode of transportation” – Agatha Christie – Death in the Clouds (1935)

I may have cheated a teensy bit by using 2 authors a lot but I do like Edmund Crispin and Agatha Christie.
