9781447245278: The Cart Before the Crime

The easiest way of stopping the Honourale Constance Morrison-Burke putting a blight on the visit of a Very Important Royal Personage to Totterbridge would have been to knock her over the head. Her fellow-townswomen prefer the more subtle approach. All they did was corner the Honourable Constance's faithful companion, Miss Jones, and give her the ultimatum. Find something to distract the Honourable Constance's attention from the preparations for the Royal Visit or else . . .

Miss Jones appreciated the problem and thankfully latched onto the first diversion which came to hand. Getting the Honourable Constance to investigate the mystery surrounding the sale of Totterford Manor looked like a master-stroke. But was it?

About the Author:

Joyce Porter was born in Marple, Cheshire, and educated at King's College, London. In 1949 she joined the Women's Royal Air Force, and, on the strength of an intensive course in Russian, qualified for confidential work in intelligence. When she left the service in 1963 she had completed three detective novels.

Porter is best known for her series of novels featuring Detective Inspector Wilfred Dover. Dover One appeared in 1964, followed by nine more in a highly successful series. Porter also created the reluctant spy Eddie Brown, and the "Hon-Con", the aristocratic gentlewoman-detective Constance Ethel Morrison Burke.
