An escaped convict, a mysterious deserted house, and murder in the Lake District..
Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club

The shades of night were falling fast when Arthur Crook drove the old Superb over the Lakeland Fells and into the valley, to stop at a mysterious house where, though a light burned in an upper window, no one answered the bell.

Here opens a double murder mystery in which Crook acts in the defence of a young prisoner on the run, whose guilt appears evident.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The usual gusto, racy prose, good plotting and up-to-the-minute social observation * 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 *
If there is one author whose books need to be widely available, it is Gilbert * Inkquilletc.blogspot *
Well-plotted, fast-moving - brilliant -- Nashville Banner
No author is more skilled at making a good story seem brilliant * SUNDAY EXPRESS *
Fast, light, likeable * NEW YORK TIMES *
The plot is knife-edge tension all the way * BELFAST TELEGRAPH *
Unquestionably a most intelligent author. Gifts of ingenuity, style and character drawing * SUNDAY TIMES *
