Rediscover Gladys Mitchell - one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.
Europe is on the brink of war, but as the quiet village of Willington braces itself for bloodshed overseas, a killer strikes much closer to home. But what connects the murder of an escaped asylum patient, a local councillor and a young volunteer at the village's air raid patrol centre? Only the exceptional Mrs Bradley, psychoanalyst and celebrated detective, can uncover the truth.
Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you'll love Mrs Bradley.

It is reissued here, in a limited edition in hardback, by Minnow Press, as the first volume in their forthcoming Mrs. Bradley Collector's Series.
