Although I'm not into crime or murder stories much on re-reading them for these synopses some of them are very good though from memory quite different to Poldark.
At the bottom of the Society's main forum page there are three sub-forums for WG's non-Poldark books, this being the top one his "Short Stories & Anthologies". Clicking on it you'll see 20 entries inside with the first entry at the bottom being a foreword to a collection of short stories he wrote under the title "The Japanese Girl" which was published by Fontana Books in 1973 and were variously written between 1947 and 1971. These stories are numbered 2 to 15. The rest numbers 16 to 20 are individual books and would have to be obtained separately.
Clicking on this link will bring you into the foreword of "The Japanese Girl" number 1 in the list with a brief introduction by WG.
The paperbacks are very cheap and easily available if you wanted one from the booksellers via the link below, as well as from the Amazon link on the right of the picture....

A couple keen to buy a farm with a few acres and see things grow luckily find after a long search an old dilapidated Elizabethan house in Cornwall, and whilst it more or less fitted the bill it didn't turn out quite the way they'd expected....
