Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder
"A first-rate job"--New York Times
"A classic of the genre"--Guardian
Horniman, Birley and Craine is a highly respected legal firm with clients drawn from the highest in the land. When a deed box in the office is opened to reveal a corpse, the threat of scandal promises to wreak havoc on the firm's reputation--especially as the murder looks like an inside job. The partners and staff of the firm keep a watchful and suspicious eye on their colleagues, as Inspector Hazlerigg sets out to solve the mystery of who Mr. Smallbone was--and why he had to die.
Written with style, pace, and wit, this is a masterpiece by one of the finest writers of traditional British crime novels since the Second World War.
