The British Library
A trio of evocative, British mysteries from the ‘golden age’ of crime writing. Death in White Pyjamas: a light-hearted, theatrical country house murder mystery from the pen of acclaimed writer John Bude. As the cast of the new play gather at the country retreat of impresario Sam Richardson, acting rivalries are soon overshadowed when one of the company’s body is discovered dressed in somebody else’s pyjamas. First published in 1942. Also includes the short story ' Death Knows No Calendar', originally published in 1944. The Spoilt Kill: a private detective is hired by Shentall’s pottery to investigate industrial espionage but when a body surfaces in a vat of clay the reader is drawn into a ‘who was murdered?’ mystery as well as ‘how?’. An award-winning crime tale from 1961 evoking the Staffordshire Potteries in the 1950s. The Man Who Didn't Fly: a plane goes down in the Irish sea and three mysterious passengers are lost but who was the fourth passenger and why didn’t he fly? A suspenseful tale set in London, Ireland and Wales. First published in 1955. Also includes the short story 'No Bath for the Browns’, originally published in 1945.
