'Never, even in his most optimistic moments, had he visualised a scene of this nature - himself in one arm-chair, a police officer in another, and between them - a mystery.' The Reverend Dodd, vicar of the quiet Cornish village of Boscawen, spends his evenings reading detective stories by the fireside - but heaven forbid that the shadow of any real crime should ever fall across his seaside parish. But the vicar's peace is shattered one stormy night when Julius Tregarthan, a secretive and ill-tempered magistrate, is found at his house in Boscawen with a bullet through his head. The local police inspector is baffled by the complete absence of clues. Suspicion seems to fall on Tregarthan's niece, Ruth - but surely that young woman lacks the motive to shoot her uncle dead in cold blood? Luckily for Inspector Bigswell, the Reverend Dodd is on hand, and ready to put his keen understanding of the criminal mind to the test. This classic mystery novel of the golden age of British crime fiction is set against the vividly described backdrop of a fishing village on Cornwall's Atlantic coast . It is now republished for the first time since the 1930s.

Review:
Bude's characterisation was a little sharper than many other genre novelists of the time. Combined witha light tone and an abundance of charm, this novel, in which an enthusiastic amateur beats the police at their own game in a rural English pre-war setting, is sheer comfort food for the crime fan. --The Herald

Apart from the mystery of who did what, when and how, the appeal of the story is in the faithful portrayal of Cornwall before the onset of mass tourism. And while reading of the hunt for clues along the cliff paths, we enjoy an intoxicating breath of sea air. --Daily Mail
About the Author:
John Bude was the pseudonym of Ernest Elmore (1901 - 1957), who wrote thirty crime novels, all of which are now rare and highly collectable. Elmore was a co-founder of the Crime Writers' Association, and worked in the theatre as a producer and director
