This 1932 serial killer mystery opens at Euston Station on a fogbound London morning. Richard Temperly and a fellow passenger check into a nearby hotel, but within minutes the other man is shot dead - and the only clue to the killer, a small red enamelled 'Z' left at the scene.

About the Author:

J. Jefferson Farjeon (1883-1955) was the author of more than sixty crime and thriller novels. He was highly acclaimed in his day but had been long neglected until the remarkable success of a new edition of Mystery in White, a Christmas crime novel that was republished by the British Library in 2014.

Book Description The British Library Publishing Division, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Jefferson Farjeon is quite unsurpassed for creepy skill in mysterious adventures. Dorothy L. SayersRichard Temperley arrives at Euston station early on a fogbound London morning. He takes refuge in a nearby hotel, along with a disagreeable fellow passenger, who had snored his way through the train journey. But within minutes the other man has snored for the last time - he has been shot dead while sleeping in an armchair. Temperley has a brief encounter with a beautiful young woman, but she flees the scene. When the police arrive, Detective Inspector James discovers a token at the crime scene: a small piece of enamelled metal. Its colour was crimson, and it was in the shape of the letter Z. Temperley sets off in pursuit of the mysterious woman from the hotel, and finds himself embroiled in a cross-country chase - by train and taxi - on the tail of a sinister serial killer. This classic novel by the author of the best-selling Mystery in White is a gripping thriller by a neglected master of the genre. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780712356213
