Poisoned Pen, 2016 (1935)
Softcover, CD, e-Book
Reviewed by Mary Ann Smyth
everend 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.
hen 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.
he Cornish Coast Murder
