Read the First Chapter



 Written by Rupert Penny


Rupert Penny wrote this longer-than-usual impossible mystery in 1937. It's full of maps, charts and highly formatted text, and Ramble House is proud to present it as a facsimile book. Its 330 pages will transport you to the English countryside of the mid-30s as Inspector Beale and his ever-present friend Tony Purdon tackle the murder of a clergyman who had the misfortune of having his head bashed in by person or persons unknown.


The author states that by the time you read the first 33 chapters you will have all the information you need to name the murderer and reconstruct the crime. Are you up to the challenge?
