A murder mystery without a clue.
When Sir John Magill, the wealthy Irish industrialist, fails to show up at his hometown on a well-publicised visit, neither his family nor the Belfast police can explain his disappearance. Foul play is suspected when his bloodstained hat is discovered, and Scotland Yard is called in. With his characteristic genius for reconstruction, Inspector French evolves a gruesome theory about what happened to the elderly man, but his reputation - and that of Scotland Yard - will depend on finding out who was responsible.
"A detective novel by Mr. Wills Crofts is always an event to those who know.... Mr. Crofts is among the few muscular writers of detective fiction. He has never let me down." (Harold Nicolson, Daily Express)

I love these intricately plotted books. Good old fashioned detection.
Having read masses of modern crime novels and watched on tv, I find it refreshing to listen to a crime novel without overload of “human interest”.

Oh so boring
I've listened to two other Wills Croft stories and quite enjoyed them, but this one I couldn't even finish. Not only did the narrator sound as if he too was bored rigged, there was nothing to take ones interest. Just facts and more facts, no real story, and no characters to wonder about. I shalln't buy anyone from this author.
