Comments & Further Information

This is a first printing of the British Library re-issue B format paperback (130 x 198 mm). Introduction by Martin Edwards. The title was originally published in 1946 by Collins. Read once very carefully but described as very good only as there are some indentations and marks on the rear cover.

SYNOPSIS:  “The Second World War is drawing to a close.  Nicholas Vaughan, released from the army after an accident, takes refuge in Devon – renting a thatched cottage in the beautiful countryside at Mallory Fitzjohn.  Vaughan sets to work farming the land, rearing geese and renovating the cottage.

When Little Thatch is destroyed in a blaze, all Vaughan’s work goes up in smoke – and Inspector Macdonald is drafted in to uncover a motive for murder.”
