Walking on the sand before breakfast, Carolus Deene's cousin Fay, who was staying on the Suffolk coast, had come upon the head of Lilliane Bomberger, the celebrated and universally detested novelist. The body was buried in the sand with only the head protruding; at least one tide had washed over it. Before this frustrating case ends, three murders are committed. This is vintage Bruce, mixing thrills and chills with unique humor.

About the Author:

Leo Bruce is the nom de plume of Rupert Croft-Cooke, who wrote some 125 mysteries, biographies and memoirs. He died in 1980. There are twenty-two mysteries featuring Deene, of which Academy Chicago has already published eleven. Death at Hallows End starts the new hardcover series. The remaining novels will be published over the next several seasons. First published in 1964, Death at Hallows End—like all Carolus Deene novels—appears in the U.S. for the first time under an American imprint.

From Publishers Weekly:

When famous mystery writer Lilliane Bomberger is found deadburied up to her neck on the beach behind her houseCarolus Deene, schoolmaster and amateur sleuth, is called upon to help the baffled police. Deene finds it difficult to pry information from Bomberger's associates, relatives and domestic staff (all of whom detested and were terrified of the woman). Soon another corpse is found and Deene decides to depart for his hometownboth because he is frustrated by the cases and because of pressure from the headmaster of his school, who fears unfavorable publicity. But as he prepares to leave, yet another murder occurs, and Deene reveals a theory that solves all three crimes. Wry English humor abounds in this eighth Carolus Deene mystery, making it an amusing, satisfying page-turner.
