About this item
I was awakened by a piercing scream that echoed and re-echoed through the house. It came from the floor below!
"Murder! Murder! Help! Help! Murder!"
The setting is Considine Manor in Sussex, where Sir Charles is holding his annual Cricket Week. But the house-party is marred by the discovery of a dead body in the billiard room, not to mention the fact that Lady Considine's pearls have been stolen. Can Inspector Baddeley catch the criminal, or will it take the super-sleuth Anthony Lotherington Bathurst to discover the diabolical truth?
The Billiard-Room Mystery was originally published in 1927. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Steve Barge.
