A British Library Crime Classic
by George Bellairs
I so very much appreciate that these British Library Classics editions are being reissued. They allow the modern reader to enjoy stories set a number of years ago.
These two novellas feature Scotland Yard’s Thomas Littlejohn in stories set during WWII. These are not flashy or deep stories but they are enjoyable. The first takes place during the Christmas holiday when Littlejohn is happy to be spending a bit of time with his wife. He becomes involved in a cost case dating to WWI.
The second story is about the mysterious death of a seventy year old man. The means of his murder is odd. Was his relative the one responsible? Littlejohn gets to work and solves the cases. Will you?
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
