Comments & Further Information

This is a B format paperback (130 x 198 mm). First printing of the Allison & Busby paperback edition with a 1-10 number sequence. Read once very carefully. The fifth book in the Elsie and Ethelred series.

SYNOPSIS: “Crime writer and reluctant sleuth Ethelred Tressider is handed his strangest case yet. Shot, plump and ultra-conservative crime reviewer, Henry Holiday is an unlikely murderer who’s convinced he’s killed somebody but doesn’t know who or when. When Ethelred agrees to help, a badly-spelt death threat arrives on his dormat. Somebody wants him off the case almost before he is on it.

His impervious agent Elsie Thirkettle encourages Ethelred to continue since it is well worth risking death in exchange for a few good reviews. He must circumvent the most crooked red herring of them all but can he do it without compromising himself?
