Book Description Collins - The Crime Club, London, 1986. Original Red Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good plus. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good plus. Reprint. 1986. Reprint (the first edition was in 1956). 198pp. Elizabeth Ferrars (1907-1995) was a popular British crime writer, born in Rangoon. She ploughed a distinguished furrow in the crime and detection field, and was a perfect representative of what is known in the United States as a writer of "cosy" mysteries: detective stories that purely entertain, with an involving puzzle solved by reasonably lifelike characters, and do not overly challenge the "status quo" or perhaps (more crucially) threaten the average reader's susceptibilities. This story centres around a quaint English village: quiet, pretty, seemingly a delightful place to liuve - and just about the last spot on earth where anyone would expect to find murder. But murder was exactly what confronted attractive Robina Mellanby soon after she came to Burnham Priors. Robina was a young widow with two children when she married Sam Mellanby. She had met Sam's colleagues and neighbours at Burnham Priors, but she had no inkling of the jealousy and hate which smothered the tiny village.
