Murder by Matchlight – E C R Lorac



In stock (can be backordered)


London. 1945. The capital is shrouded in the darkness of the blackout, and mystery abounds in the parks after dusk. During a stroll through Regents Park, Bruce Mallaig witnesses two men acting suspiciously around a footbridge. In a matter of moments, one of them has been murdered; Mallaigs view of the assailant but a brief glimpse of a ghastly face in the glow of a struck match. The murderers noiseless approach and escape seems to defy all logic, and even the victims identity is quickly thrown into uncertainty. Loracs shrewd yet personable C.I.D. man MacDonald must set to work once again to unravel this near-impossible mystery.
