Synopses & Reviews
This English author's first book, first published in England in 1937, introduces Inspector Dan Pardoe who looks into the death of an old lady in an English village. When this book first appeared, The Times of London said "Miss Dorothy Bowers should make a name in detective fiction." And she no doubt would have had she not succumbed to TB at the age of 46 after only five novels, all of which will be reprinted by The Rue Morgue Press. Dorothy L. Sayers fans will not be disappointed.
