- We can order this from the publisher
He tried to help a woman in need - but she's the prime suspect in her husband's murder...
Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club
Con Gardiner had no family; his work and his one-room flat filled most of his solitary existence, until one evening a strange girl in the street asked him to lend her a pound.
Con was attracted to Caro Graves, and puzzled too; he couldn't see what would become of this girl who had just left her husband after a bitter quarrel, and who had nowhere to go. But he was soon to have more to worry about: Caro's husband was dead . . . and Caro was the main suspect.
