In 1949 the town of Winchingham was rocked by a series of three astonishing disappearances: a man on his way to being married; a room from 100 years ago; and a narrow street. All three disappearances have overtones of the supernatural, and that's something that local citizen Jimmy Melrose thrives on. But for Detective-Inspector Lancelot Carolus Smith, the supernatural simply won't do and he resolves to find what's really behind the three impossible mysteries. Only New Zealander Norman Berrow could come up with such a complicated web of events, and only Detective-Inspector Smith could unravel the skein of mystery and terror that has Winchingham so baffled.

Berrow was a New Zealander, though none of his novels is set there. He was married, spent some time in Gibraltar in the 30s (his early books are set there and he seems to have known the place pretty well), and was in the military service for six years during and just after World War II. He wrote 20 novels between 1936 and 1954, all of which are published by Ramble House.
