the case of the corner cottage christopher bush
I was thinking of offering Godfrey Prial some sort of partnership. I’m pretty sure now of at least two things—that he liked me, and that he’d have accepted. If he’d lived.
When Ludovic Travers took over Bill Ellice’s Broad Street Detective Agency, he was glad to welcome back from war service the Agency’s star operative, Godfrey Prial. But when something happened to Prial whilst holidaying in an East Anglian town, Travers decided that a case was one he must tackle on his own. The trail led him to a year-old murder, the violent death of a retired jeweller, the theft of some particularly valuable diamonds, to a mad old man and to a young lady who didn’t somehow ring true. The Case of the Corner Cottage shows Christopher Bush at his most astute and entertaining.
The Case of the Corner Cottage was originally published in 1951. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
