The Big Bow Mystery

A rarely republished tale from the 1887-1914 era of Gaslight Crime, in which many of the greatest characters and conceits of the British crime genre first appeared. The Big Bow Mystery: originally published in 1892 and the first 'locked-room' crime novel; written by East End-born Israel Zangwill (1864-1926) who became a well-known playwright and novelist.
East End landlady Mrs Drabdump is alarmed when she cannot rouse her lodger Arthur Constant. Her neighbour, retired Scotland Yard detective George Grodman, breaks down the door only to find the man lying dead. No-one, it seems, could have got in or out of the locked room and there is no sign of the murder weapon. Who was the killer and can Grodman save an innocent man?

Paperback, 7 " h x 5", 160 pages.
