    The reverend Dodd, vicar of the quiet Cornish village of Boscawen, spends his evenings reading detective stories by the fireside - but heaven forbid that the shadow of any real crime should ever fall across his seaside parish. But the vicar's peace is shattered one stormy night when Julius Tregarthan, an ill-tempered magistrate, is found at his house in Boscawen with a bullet through his head. The local police inspector is baffled by the lack of clues.

    dreadful narration

    Not sure if this is a good story or not, the narration is so dreadful its a complete distraction from the story. I wont bother with any more of this s..Show More »

    Luke flung the light of his torch full onto the face of the immobile figure. Then he had the shock of his life. The man had no face! Where his face should have been was a sort of inhuman, uniform blank! 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?

    Interesting reminder of life in the recent past!

    The slightly-old-fashioned language, the illustrations of everyday life in the 1930's, the meticulous police procedure and an interesting mystery

    "Already it looked as if the police were up against a carefully planned and cleverly executed murder, and, what was more, a murder without a corpse!" Two brothers, John and William Rother, live together at Chalklands Farm in the beautiful Sussex Downs. Their peaceful rural life is shattered when John Rother disappears and his abandoned car is found. Has he been kidnapped? Or is his disappearance more sinister - connected, perhaps, to his growing rather too friendly with his brother's wife?

    A enjoyable (and to me, unknown) classic

    This is an early classic mystery, from the days when a detective story was above all an intellectual puzzle. The detective is gentle and well-drawn, w..Show More »
