the case of the seven bells christopher bush
The murderer was clever and the planning was perfect. There was apparently nothing that had been overlooked and nothing that didn’t go to plan. There was nothing that could be called a slip. Why then was the murderer caught?
Too few answers chasing too many questions is the problem facing Ludovic Travers and Superintendent George Wharton when a famous actress is murdered. The crime-investigator always looks for unusual circumstances, departures from customary routines. Travers’ trouble is that in the odd-behaviour department he finds himself confronted by a definite surfeit of riches. . . .
The Case of the Seven Bells was originally published in 1949. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
“Has all the elements of mounting suspense. . . . not only well-plotted but told with the skill in depicting atmosphere and character that readers have learned to expect from Mr. Bush.” Knoxville News-Sentinel
