Seasonal sleuthing in a republished gem from the golden age of British crime-writing. Portrait of a Murderer: a grim family gathering on Christmas Eve, 1931 sees Adrian Gray’s houseguests wishing him anything but festive cheer. As Christmas Day dawns at Kings Poplars, the malevolent wish of one of his family has been granted and Gray is dead. This unusual novel presents a psychological portrait of the murderer and what happened on that dark, Christmas night. Originally published in 1933 by Lucy Beatrice Malleson (1899-1973), under one of her pen-names as ‘Anne Meredith’.
