9781616463205: Mystery at Lynden Sands

Mr. Connington has written several detective stories of a high order and one-Murder in the Maze-which ranks with the best thrillers in recent years. Mystery at Lynden Sands is certainly on the same high level. The mysterious death of a caretaker; the burglary of the mansion left in his charge; a murder on the beach, which throws suspicion on one character after another; an apparently motiveless attack upon a visitor; the appearance of a claimant to an estate; a case of kidnapping; and a line of footprints in the sands which breaks off as though the walker had vanished into the air-these are some of the elements out of which the story has been built. As in his earlier works, the author plays quite fair with his readers; everything is satisfactorily accounted for; and all the evidence is given which is required for the solution of the complex problem confronting the detectives.

About the Author:

Alfred Walter Stewart, who wrote under the pen name J. J. Connington, was born in Glasgow, the youngest of three sons of Reverend Dr Stewart. He graduated from Glasgow University and pursued an academic career as a chemistry professor, working for the Admiralty during the First World War. Known for his ingenious and carefully worked-out puzzles and in-depth character development, he was admired by a host of his better-known contemporaries, including Dorothy L. Sayers and John Dickson Carr, who both paid tribute to his influence on their work. He married Jessie Lily Courts in 1916 and they had one daughter.
