When a secret agent disappears in highly suspicious circumstances connected with an acid bath, it is not long before two high-powered operatives arrive. But they find the Flaxborough citizenry even more unscrutable than the problems of international spying.

About the Author:

Colin Watson was born in 1920. He worked as a journalist but was most famous for his twelve 'Flaxborough' novels, set in a small fictional town in England. Four of the 'Flaxborough' novels were adapted for television by the BBC under the series title Murder Most English and Watson's Detective Inspector Purbright remains one of the most intellectual detectives in the crime genre. Colin Watson died in 1983.

Review:

'[A] macabre and jolly English tale' - "New Yorker". 'Mr. Watson has an unforgivably sharp eye for the ridiculous' - Anthony Boucher, "New York Times".
