Found Drowned

(Book 33 in the Desmond Merrion series)
A novel by

Found Drowned, first published in 1956 as a Crime Club Detective Story, features Inspector Henry Arnold and Desmond Merrion, no. 53 in the series of British mysteries by Miles Burton (a pen-name for prolific author Cecil Street [1884-1964]). From the dustjacket: This skillful detective story is set in Greycliffe-on-Sea, a holiday resort in the north of England. Mr. Merrion revisits his old preparatory school in Greycliffe and while reminiscing with the headmaster, recalls the school doctor of his own day, a Dr. Harpole - he learns that Harpole's two sons are still living in Greycliffe. Charles, the eldest, is a master at the school, but Arthur, his younger brother, is a waster, always out of work. One morning Arthur is found drowned and investigation reveals all too many reasons why it should not have been an accident. A marriage, a legacy, old scores and new, provide a tangle of motives for the police and Mr. Merrion to unravel. The seaside town is an effective background for Miles Burton's cunningly solid novel.
