The truth must be discovered

In order to discuss plans for her future, newly widowed Laura Langley visits her daughter, Eve, and her unpleasant, womanising husband, Richard, a doctor.

However, before they can talk, Richard is discovered dead - murdered. But by whom? Could it be the man whose baby died because Richard refused to visit?

Could it be the boyfriend of Richard's attractive new receptionist? When the police seem to be making no headway, Laura decides to make a few enquiries of her own . . .

The third in the D.I. Price Mystery series, And Be a Villain is an intriguing and gripping mystery tale.

Praise for Joanna Cannan



'An excellent English rural tale." - Jacques Barzun & Wendell Hertig Taylor in A Catalogue of Crime

Before Joanna Cannan tried her hand at detective fiction, her books dealt primarily with the aftermath of World War I and life in England during the Great Depression, although several of her novels did have elements of crime fiction in them. All show her keen interest in the social mores of the day and how people behave in difficult times. During the war, Cannan devoted her energies with great success to writing fiction for young readers.
