The Case of the Dead Shepherd

(1934)
(Book 12 in the Ludovic Travers series)
A novel by

 
 
Travers turned to Wharton. "I ask you, George, as a man of the world - do schoolmasters and mistresses have souls full of glamour and passion and intrigue? Are they torn by the same emotions that rend people like us?"

At first the old schoolmaster's poisoning was judged a suicide. But there were too many suspicious circumstances to satisfy Inspector Wharton of Scotland Yard. Why, for instance, had the dead man clung to a large book as he expired? And where is Flint, the school caretaker? Wharton, accompanied as ever by inspired amateur sleuth Ludovic Travers, journey to the grim pile of Woodgate Hill school to find a shocking and unpredictable solution to this murder . . . and then another.

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

"Thoroughly engrossing, well written and full of legitimate puzzlement." - Dorothy L. Sayers
