About the Author

MAVIS DORIEL HAY (1894-1979) was a novelist of the golden age of British crime fiction. Her three detective novels were published in the 1930s and have now been reintroduced to modern readers by the British Library.


It was interesting to follow how he sorted out the clues and gathered the needed evidence to arrest the suspect. The antics of the undergraduates were humorous and gave a lighthearted feel to the story.--Deborah White "NetGalley "
Death on the Cherwell by Mavis Doriel Hay is one of the novels published during what is considered the Golden Age of British Crime Writing in the 1930s. The authors of crime fiction were very popular at that time and deserve a second chance to delight the mystery lovers of today.--Mary Ann Smyth "Bookloons "
Another wonderful British Library Crime Classic! This Girls Own story set in Persephone College, Oxford, where the body of the Bursar of the college is found in the river, harks back to exciting stories of plucky girls who investigate and solve mysteries which were so popular in the 1930s.--Eileen Hall "NetGalley "
The result is a wonderful "one of us may be the murderer" tangle, encompassing fraud and passion in the college itself. Intelligent, funny, sexy cast, and what do you have? Some marvelous reading, that's what. Another worthy rerelease in the British Library Crime Classics series.--Connie Fletcher "Booklist "
