The Case of the Unfortunate Village

(1932)
(The seventh book in the Ludovic Travers series)
A novel by

 
 
"It was some sort of sudden death?"

Travers made a face. "It certainly was sudden. I'll say it's ten to one it was murder."

Ludovic Travers is asked by an old school friend, Henry Dryden, to investigate the cause of the agitation in the formerly placid village of Bableigh - not to mention the gunshot death, ruled an accident, of Dryden's friend Tom Yeoman, the local impoverished squire. Even after Travers and ex-CID associate John Franklin arrive in Bableigh, however, the spell of unfortunate village "accidents" continues. And now there are rumours of a witches' coven, right in the heart of the community... Can Ludo and Franklin solve the mystery of the strange malaise that has afflicted the unfortunate Bableigh, and return the community to its previous state of pastoral grace?

The Case of the Unfortunate Village was originally published in 1932. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
