A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY

WH Auden, Nancy Mitford and Noel Coward were among his fans... But have you discovered E. F. Benson yet?

When Mills’ body is discovered, brutally beaten, the ugly quarrel comes to light and suspicion naturally falls on Morris. His innocence is debated in a tense courtroom, as an eager public and press look on.

Murder mystery... Courtroom drama. This is a classic whodunnit from the author of Mapp and Lucia. Crime fiction at its best.
