Reverend Dodd, vicar of the Cornish village of Boscawen, enjoys spending his evenings quietly reading detective stories by a cozy fire. When a real crime occurs (the shooting of a local magistrate), he feels he must put his extensive reading to good use.

When no clues appear, Dodd offers his expertise to catch the killer. Oddly enough, he solves the unusual murder, surprising even himself. It's a delightful mystery. I can easily picture the scenes by the fire as well as the cold night when a man was shot from outside his house during miserable weather.

The Cornish Coast Murder by John Bude was first published in 1935 during the golden age of crime writing.
