Cut Throat

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

 
 
Travers looked down at the face. On the collar was a red patch and a long streak. Across the throat was a gash.

Two rival London newspaper tycoons are at daggers drawn. But when Sir William Griffith's corpse turns up in a hamper, his throat cut from ear to ear, the enmity appears to turned deadly. Or is it instead a case of domestic terrorism? Superintendent Wharton of the Yard brings Ludovic Travers into the case and together they investigate a gallery of additional suspects: explorer Tim Griffiths; Sir William's financial secretary, Bland, and his wife; local vicar Reverend Cross; an archetypally sinister butler ... and an intrusive crime reporter, who always seems to find himself in the thick of a crime scene. Wharton and Travers come to believe they have identified their murderer - but how can they break a cast-iron alibi?

Cut Throat was originally published in 1932. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
