Description

"This is not suicide, gentlemen. This is murder! Cold-blooded murder! The sooner we get the police here and find Sir Eustace Vernon, the better!"

Christmas Eve at Vernon House is in full swing. Sir Eustace's nearest and dearest, and the great and the good of Mapleton, are all there. But the season of comfort and joy doesn't run true to form. Before the night is out, Sir Eustace has disappeared and his butler, Purvis, lies dead, poisoned, with a threatening message in his pocket. Or is it her pocket?

That same evening, Police Commissioner Sir Austin Kemble and investigator Anthony Bathurst are out for a drive. They come across an abandoned car at a railway crossing, and find a body - Sir Eustace Vernon, plus two extraordinary additions. One, a bullet hole in the back of his head. Two, a red bon-bon in his pocket with a threatening message attached.

The Murders near Mapleton was originally published in 1929. This new edition includes an introduction by crime fiction historian Steve Barge.
