Comments & Further Information

This is a first printing of the British Library re-issue paperback.  Introduction by Martin Edwards. The title was originally published in 1960 by Chapman and Hall and is the first in a series of Sergeant Cluff detective stories that were televised in the 1960s.  Read once very carefully.

SYNOPSIS: “Amy Snowden, in middle age, has long since settled into a lonely life in the Yorkshire town of Gunnarshaw, until – to her neighbour’s surprise – she suddenly marries a much younger man. Months later, Amy is found dead – apparently by her own hand – and her husband, Wright, has disappeared.

Sergeant Caleb Cluff – silent, watchful, a man at home in the bleak moorland landscape of Gunnarshaw – must find the trugh about the couple’s unlikely marriage, and solve the riddle of Amy’s death.”
