A chilling day of murder in the midst of post-World War II austerity
Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club

In the spring of 1946, the redoubtable Lady Bate arrives at The Downs, built by the eccentric Colonel Anstruther years before. The aftermath of war has forced the colonel's daughter to take in paying guests, but only Lady Bate knows the secret of Mrs Anstruther's past life and the mystery behind her hermit-like existence.

When Lady Bate is found dead, a chance remark puts detective Arthur Crook on the right track, which he follows - at risk to his life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Unquestionably a most intelligent author. Gifts of ingenuity, style and character drawing * SUNDAY TIMES *
Anthony Gilbert shared with other successful crime writers a combination of writing talent and clever plotting skills necessary to make it in detective fiction's Golden Age ... Along with Agatha Christie [he] had a talent to deceive * mysteryfile.com *
No author is more skilled at making a good story seem brilliant * SUNDAY EXPRESS *
If there is one author whose books need to be widely available, it is Gilbert * Inkquilletc.blogspot *
