Murder In Reverse - A "Mr Pendlebury" Novel

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

During the war Mr Pendlebmy had become an enthusiastic Air-Raid Warden in the little Berkshire town where he lived. He rarely went to London, but his friend. Inspector Wagstafte of Scotland Yard, had stayed at Five Oaks, and through him Mr Pcndlebury had met Major Bingley, the Chief Constable.
But no crime ever happened in Stutlerford that called for Mr Pendlebury's careful and persevering genius to solve.

Then, one hot Saturday in June, Mr Pendlebury was disturbed to hear of the sudden death of a neighbour, Mr Joseph Kendrick, on his eightieth birthday. The same evening Major Bingley told him of the murder of Mr Bancroft, the solicitor, and invited Mr Pendlebury to go along for the preliminary investigations. During Sunday he assisted the police in their examination of the late solicitor's papers. On Monday they heard that Mr Kendrick had not died a natural death. With two murders to be investigated, the Chief Constable was a very worried man, and only too glad of Mr Pendlebury"s co-operation. From details such as entries in a pass-hook, a photograph in a grocer's window, a tobacco tin, and some new fuse-wire, Mr Pendlebury gradually built up his theory in his roundabout yet workmanlike manner, and presented a complete solution to a grateful Chief Constable.

There is some shelf wear and slight bumping to the covers and spine of the book. There is very light foxing on the inside of the covers and to the front and back free end papers. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is tight.
