Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder

"Originally published in 1935, Bude's murder mystery remains as intriguing today as it was upon its release almost 80 years ago." ―Publishers Weekly

When a body is found at an isolated garage, Inspector Meredith is drawn into a complex investigation where every clue leads to another puzzle: was this a suicide, or something more sinister? Why was the dead man planning to flee the country? And how is this connected to the shady business dealings of the garage?

This classic mystery novel is set amidst the stunning scenery of a small village in the Lake District. It is now republished for the first time since the 1930s with an introduction by the award-winning crime writer Martin Edwards.

About the Author:

JOHN BUDE was the pseudonym of Ernest Elmore (1901–1957), an author of the golden age of crime fiction. Elmore was a cofounder of the Crime Writers' Association, and worked in the theatre as a producer and director.

Review:
"The deeper Meredith delves into the case, the more complicated it becomes. A cast of believable, colorful characters will keep the reader engaged..." (Publishers Weekly)

"Golden Age writer Bude's mystery (published in 1935, the same year as his debut novel, The Cornish Coast Murder, moves from this spectacularly disturbing opening into a satisfying intellectual puzzle, in which tiny discrepancies, like what time the tea table was set, become hugely illuminating." (Connie Fletcher Booklist)
