The British Library
A 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 has seen? And how did the murderer avoid making any noise? An atmospheric, wartime mystery; widely regarded as one of E.C.R. Lorac's - the pen name of Edith Caroline Rivett (1894-1958) - finest novels. First published in 1945. Also includes the short story 'Permanent Policeman', originally published in 'MacKill's Mystery Magazine' in 1953.
