Description

Six masked and identically dressed clowns meet at a fancy dress ball. One of them is murdered. Was the claivoyante right in claiming that she foresaw the crime? The inspector believed that she recognised the dead man. Did she? Or was she herself to be the next victim? With a murdered clown, five suspects and several red herrings Josephine Bell sets a pretty problem in detection for David Wintringham the doctor and amateur detective. Her new story of crime and the supernatural is elegantly contrived with a careful attention to intriguing clues and misleading detail. Its exciting course and highly original denouement will in every way justify the expectations of the author's many admirers.show more
