blurb:Dr James Earle and his wife live in comfortable seclusion near the Hog’s Back, a ridge in the North Downs in the beautiful Surrey countryside. When Dr Earle disappears from his cottage, Inspector French is called in to investigate. At first he suspects a simple domestic intrigue – and begins to uncover a web of romantic entanglements beneath the couple’s peaceful rural life.
The case soon takes a more complex turn. Other people vanish mysteriously, one of Dr Earle’s house guests among them. What is the explanation for the disappearances? If the missing people have been murdered, what can be the motive? This fiendishly complicated puzzle is one that only Inspector French can solve.

On the way to someone who likes these crime classics - hope they've not read it!

Thank you, plum. What a lovely way to start a sunny Wednesday, the postman ringing the bell to bring me a suprise parcel of books. Wonderful!

This one is particularly welcome as I love these British Library Crime Classics and the way they transport the reader back to a very different time and place. I've read two by this author before, both of which either came from or went to you :-) Mystery in the Channel and Antidote to Venom Thank you.

FWC writes well-crafted puzzles, painstakingly planned plots that are revealed slowly, detail by detail.

I had to smile every time DI French caught a bus or borrowed a bike to go and interview people - and he always went alone, no other witnesses, no-one to corroborate his evidence . . . Oh, it was a different world back then . . . :-)

Thank you very much this surprise "motley collection of books", which arrived yesterday. There's bound to be something of interest in here.

I enjoyed the author's Antidote To Venom, so I look forward to reading this one too.
