A Taste of Power

(1966)
(The first book in the Henry Pym series)
A novel by

 
 
Dr Henry Pym, scholar, recluse and amateur detective, is asked to help headmaster Tristram-Jones solve a nasty case of poison-pen writing at his school, perpetrated, it is thought, by one of the teachers. Miss Pugsley, a recent addition to the chemistry staff, is found dead at the foot of nearby cliffs, and Chief Inspector Judd joins the amateur sleuths. Her death is regarded as suicide, until analysis of her clothes points to suspicious circumstances. When Miss Barton is murdered on stage in the school play, it takes Henry Pym's hard logic, plus a last-minute surprise, to solve the mystery. "A Must for Crime Book Devotees" - WOMAN'S WORLD
