Yes a very good read from memory....

____________________________

"An exciting story which is better written and more carefully worked out than the majority of thrillers. The characterisation is convincing and the background effective." - Daily Telegraph.

"Here is a crime book which calls upon its readers to study a new angle of crime....The plot is disguised with grand ingenuity." - Peter Belloc in the Daily Sketch.

* * * *

"Over the winter holidays an English housemaster is invited to a small weekend house party at his old Victorian school remotely situated on the Welsh border, during which he hoped it might lead to an invitation to eventually him becoming headmaster. Throughout dinner however a hostile atmosphere gradually began to develop among all the guests, and when shortly afterwards one of them is found murdered in the lounge there seemed to be no apparent motive."

Just to let you know, I have never received this book and am in the process now of enquiring about it. Hope it's not lost in the mail.

Will do. It'll take awhile but in the meantime I finally received my copy of "Cordelia" which I will start soon.

I bought it! It wasn't in good condition but it seemed like a rare opportunity given the price. Thanks again.

Thanks Kathy. A very early book which I'd never heard of. It sounds interesting so will have a look.
