The British Library
A trio of classic, British-set mystery from the ‘golden age’ of crime writing.
Murder by Matchlight: Regents Park, London in 1945: a murder in the blackout sparks a logic-defying case. Only glimpsed for a few seconds by the light of a match, can Bruce Mallaig be sure of what he saw? An atmospheric, wartime mystery first published 1945. Also includes the short story 'Permanent Policeman', originally published in 1953.
Surfeit of Suspects: when an explosion rips through the quiet of a small, Surrey town can Superintendent Littlejohn discover who laid the dynamite and unravel whose small-town grudge took its murderous revenge? First published in 1964.
Family Matters: eccentric Robert Kewdingham busies himself with Roman artefacts in dusty retirement in Shufflecester; an increasing embarrassment to his wife. Resentments come to a head with the arrival of the exotic London bachelor John Harrigall and a dose of poison destroys the façade of the marriage for good. First published in 1933.
