A body in the belfry… and a gruesome mystery to uncover for the inimitable Crook and Parsons.
Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club

The bell of St Ethelburga’s had stopped ringing. It had pealed out its customary call to the faithful, its gentle reproach to the sluggards; but somehow that morning it did not seem to ring as long as usual. For Death had been busy in the belfry, where a startled vicar made an appalling discovery.

The murder in the church begins another mystery for the inimitable Crook and Parsons, who shine with their trademark ingenuity and impudence.
