"Have you heard the news, sir?" the waiter said.

"I'm afraid I haven't. What is it?"

"Plumley's dead, sir. Henry Plumley. We just got the news over the 'phone. Suicide they say it was. Anything else you want, sir?"

Out-of-print for over nine decades and one of the rarest classic crime novels from the Golden Age of detective fiction, The Plumley Inheritance, first of the Ludovic Travers mysteries, is now available in a new edition by Dean Street Press.

When the eccentric magnate Henry Plumley shockingly collapses and dies, a great adventure begins for Ludovic Travers, the dead man's secretary, and his comrade Geoffrey Wrentham - a romp with not only mystery and mischief in the offing but murder too.

The Plumley Inheritance was originally published in 1926. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
