Book Description Sphere Books Limited, 1990. paperback. Condition: New. UNUSED, VERY GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, 288 pages. Events are getting stranger in the village of Wandles Parva. The Bishop says people like Rupert Sethleigh don't disappear-so where is he? The butcher Binks has found human joints hanging on the hooks where his beef and lamb should be and the Druid stone in Manor Woods has anew splash of blood. A skull has turned up but keeps going missing, a curious fight has broken out over 'og pudden' in the local pub, and when a suitcase is unearthed by police, it is found to contain an affronted-looking stuffed trout.It's all too easy in the opinion of Mrs Beatrice Adela Lestrange Bradley (who is surely the only one who would think so) and she soon has the neighbourhood well and truly questioned.No gentle Miss Marple she - with her unlovely cackle and alarming methods. But what methods -as devotees of 'the great Gladys'Mitchell will anticipate with relish. Until you have encountered the outrageously-clad grand dame of detection, you may not have fully considered the meaning of the word eccentric.Also by Gladys Mitchell in Sphere books:'DEATH AT THE OPERA LAMENT FOR LETO SUNSET OVER SOHO ST PETER'S FINGER THE DEVIL'S ELBOW 158.
