The British Library
An evocative, British mystery from the golden age of crime writing.
A gathering of the Surrays and their five children at their Oxfordshire home is a rare chance to exchange news in the literary dynasty. From learned treatises, crime novels and critical reviews, the family have ink in their blood. Tragedy strikes when the middle sister – Ruth – apparently commits suicide, succumbing to the pressures she had tried to escape in the comfort of the countryside home. Ruth’s family come together to mourn, and a publishing friend is named as her literary executor. But when a letter from Ruth, delayed in the post, finally arrives, Ruth’s brother Richard is convinced it was murder. Can Chief Inspector Roger Macdonald untangle the literary threads and uncover the cold-blooded killer? First published in 1936, a republished tale by the revered and prolific E.C.R. Lorac, penname of Edith Caroline Rivett (1894-1958).
