'Already it looked as if the police were up against a carefully planned and cleverly executed murder, and, what was more, a murder without a corpse!' Two brothers, John and William Rother, live together at Chalklands Farm in the beautiful Sussex Downs. Their peaceful rural life is shattered when John Rother disappears and his abandoned car is found. Has he been kidnapped? Or is his disappearance more sinister - connected, perhaps, to his growing rather too friendly with his brother's wife? Superintendent Meredith is called to investigate - and begins to suspect the worst when human bones are discovered on Chalklands farmland., His patient, careful detective method begins slowly to untangle the clues as suspicion shifts from one character to the next. This classic detective novel from the 1930s is now republished for the first time, with an introduction by the award-winning crime writer Martin Edwards.

Review:
John Bude has a sharp eye for location. In this tightly plotted tale the investigation into a vicious attack on a local farmer extends over the highways and byways of Sussex ... The period feel is strong and the characters are entirely believable. The story is a natural for screen adaptation. --Daily Mail
About the Author:
John Bude was the pseudonym of Ernest Elmore (1901 - 1957), an author of the golden age of crime fiction. Elmore was a co-founder of the Crime Writers' Association, and worked in the theatre as a producer and director. His first two books, The Cornish Coast Murder and The Lake District Murder, were republished as British Library Crime Classics to great acclaim in 2014.
