9780099572428: The Blotting Book

A brutal murder shocks 1930s Brighton's high society in this classic crime caper for fans of AA Milne's Red House Mystery, Margery Allingham, Edmund Crispin, and Gladys Mitchell

Morris Assheton is in love, and means to be married. But his happiness is spoiled when he discovers that someone has been whispering poisonous rumors about him to the girl's father. The culprit is Mills, dastardly partner to the Assheton family's trusted lawyer. Morris vows revenge. 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, but at the last minute the truth will be discovered in a crumpled envelope and blotting pad.

His novels attracted a following among high society in the 1920s, including Nancy Mitford, W. H. Auden, Noël Coward, and Gertrude Lawrence.

Review:

"This novel, one of the progenitors of the classic British mystery, bristles with elegant suspense as it ushers its upper-class characters from their mansions to the harsh reality of a criminal courtroom."  —Washington Post
