The British Library
An evocative, 1930s British mystery from the golden age of crime writing; carefully selected and republished by the British Library with an informative new introduction. When a reclusive mystery author disappears Inspector Bond of Scotland Yard is left in the puzzling position of looking for a murder without a corpse and, quite possibly, even a fictional victim. Is the writer’s secretary Eleanor hiding her talents and under-stating her role in the mystery? Is the disappearance of the author’s housekeeper evidence of foul play? How can detectives detect at all when no-one appears to be who they say they are? A wry and red-herring-filled mystery, now in print for the first time since its original publication in 1935. Written by E.C.R. Lorac, the penname of Edith Caroline Rivett (1894-1958); author of over 60 novels published 1931-59.
