The Case of the 100% Alibis

(1934)
(Book 11 in the Ludovic Travers series)
A novel by

 
 
"Send someone here quick. There's been a murder!"

Mr Lewton is dead. Stabbed through the back, no possibility of suicide - and no sign of a knife either. The deceased made a phone call summoning a doctor immediately before his own death. And the servant who supposedly reported the murder wasn't even at the scene of the crime, and denies all knowledge. These are among the bizarre opening features of a classic labyrinthine whodunit from a master of the genre - an adventure into which master sleuth Ludovic Travers must plunge himself. This is a tale of cake and conundrum in which every suspect has a water-tight alibi. But trust Travers to solve a virtually unbreakable mystery.

The Case of the 100% Alibis was originally published in 1934. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.

"Seldom, if ever, has the alibi problem been handled so deftly or in such an entertaining manner as Mr. Bush has done in this grade A yarn,"--New York Times
