'The death was an odd one, it was true; but there was after all no very clear reason to assume it was anything but natural.' First published in 1943, Raymond Postgate's wartime murder mystery combines thrilling detection with rich characters and a fascinating depiction of life on the home front.
Martin Edwards introduces neglected gems of British crime writing with these twelve stories, which strike a blow for the professionals with teasing mysteries for police officer protagonists.
