Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder
"Originally published in 1935, Bude's murder mystery remains as intriguing today as it was upon its release almost 80 years ago." --Publishers Weekly
When a body is found at an isolated garage, Inspector Meredith is drawn into a complex investigation where every clue leads to another puzzle: was this a suicide, or something more sinister? Why was the dead man planning to flee the country? And how is this connected to the shady business dealings of the garage?
This classic mystery novel is set amidst the stunning scenery of a small village in the Lake District. It is now republished for the first time since the 1930s with an introduction by the award-winning crime writer Martin Edwards.
