(1931)
(The sixth book in the Ludovic Travers series)
A novel by

 
 
"If you don't think I'm taking a liberty in saying so, my opinion is that he was knocked down first and hanged after!"

Ludovic Travers starts an investigation of unnatural death by means of an automobile mishap on a rural road. His associate Superintendent Wharton is investigating a suspicious suicide by hanging at the nearby village of Pawlton Ferris. When the supposed suicide turns out to be a case of murder, Travers realizes he recognizes the corpse, despite attempts to alter the dead man's appearance. The plot is thickened by a strange letter sent to Travers by the eccentric and musical Claude Rook. As Travers and Wharton are drawn further into the investigation of the murder, they begin to fit more and more pieces into a weird puzzle, unlocking the strange secret of the dead man's music.

Dead Man's Music was originally published in 1931. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
