9780140080858: The Face on the Cutting-room Floor (Classic Crime)

With an introduction by Jonathan Coe

1930s King's Cross, London.

When aspiring film actress Estella Lamare is found dead on the cutting-room floor of a London film studio, Cameron McCabe finds himself at the centre of a police investigation. There are multiple suspects, multiple confessors and, as more people around him die, McCabe begins to perform his own amateur sleuth-work, followed doggedly by the mysterious Inspector Smith.

But then, abruptly, McCabe's account ends . . .

Who is Cameron McCabe? Is he victim? Murderer? Novelist? Joker?

And if not McCabe, who is the author of The Face on the Cutting-Room Floor?

Product Description:

Something Very Special (Again!) In The Way of Detective Stories First novel by Cameron McCabe (Ernst Julius Bornemann). Published in 1937, it's a fascinating story of murder and intrigue, with the killer dying half-way through, and his narrative picked up by the policeman who'd been trailing him. Unique. And worth it just for the fake quotes by leading literary figures of the day.
