I'm taking a revolver to Thrackley. You never know with blokes like Carson. I hate these harmless, potty people - they're always up to something.

Jim Henderson is one of six guests summoned by the mysterious Edwin Carson, a collector of precious stones, to a weekend party at his country house, Thrackley. The house is gloomy and forbidding but the party is warm and hospitable - except for the presence of Jacobson, the sinister butler.

The other guests are wealthy people draped in jewels; Jim cannot imagine why he belongs in such company. After a weekend of adventure - with attempted robbery and a vanishing guest - secrets come to light and Jim unravels a mystery from his past.

“Brilliant cozy crime”

I wizzed through this novel in no time. Reminiscent of Agatha Christie, the book drops you straight into a 1930s world with country houses, house parties and of course crimes befitting the era.

“A very funny classic crime novel”

This 1934 novel, recently reissued in the popular British Library Crime Classic series, is written with the “light touch” that the debut author was aiming for, and is consequently a funny, clever and perhaps fanciful... More
