Read the First Chapter



by Rupert Penny


 In Policeman in Armour, Rupert Penny once again guides you through the evidence up to a certain point, then turns on you and says: “Now you ought to know who murdered the man, and how, and why.” But do you know? Test your brains and see. You will find it an enthralling-game. In this story, Sir Raymond Everett, ex-judge, is murdered in his mansion Heath Approach, and there is no shortage of suspects for Chief-Inspector Beale of Scotland Yard to interrogate and consider. Assisted as always by his friend and fellow-sleuth Tony Purdon, as well as Detective-sergeant ‘Horsey’ Matthews, also of the Yard, and the local constabulary, Beale finds this case one of the most challenging of his career.
