The Case of the Hanging Rope

(1937)
A novel by

 
 
"You needn't look impatient, sir. He'll be finished with you long before dinner.

Who has murdered the beautiful Sonia Vorge in her bridal bed? Why is the sinisterly looped rope hanging from the oak-beam? And what has the ghost of Montage Hall to do with it all? These are the problems confronting Ludovic Travers, and he rapidly finds that there is much more in this than meets the eye - and that there are things even Superintendent Wharton must not be told.

Belgian hares, missing masterpieces, the mysterious man from Odessa - Travers, with methods as unorthodox as they are brilliant, finally sees their significance and solves the case.

The Case of the Hanging Rope was originally published in 1937. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.

Travers: "As for my methods of crime detection - well, I haven't any. For that my only tool is a brain that has been called agile, sharpened on crosswords rather than chess."
