The Toff on the Farm

(1958)
(Terror for the Toff)
(Book 39 in the Toff series)
A novel by

 
"OF course, what you ought to do is buy a farm," declared Montagu Moutmorency Morne. "Think what it would do for you. Fresh eggs and milk every morning, grow your own bacon in your own backyard, all kinds of juicy fruit straight from tree or bush into the consumer's mouth. It's the healthiest occupation ever thought of, and remember what it would do to your income tax." He paused; and beamed. "What would it do to my income tax?" inquired the Honorable Richard Rollison, politely. And so begins an odd type of rural escapade for Hon Richard Rollison, aka the Toff.

'The King of Crime' wrote an astonishing number of crime and mystery books, selling more than 80 million copies worldwide in 28 languages over five decades. His most famous characters include The Baron, Inspector West, and Gideon. The Creasey Dagger is the UK's top award for first time crime novelists with winners including Patricia Cornwell and Minette Walters. Creasey is an inspiration to the aspiring but as yet unpublished author. He had 743 rejection slips before his first book was accepted. He never stopped believing in himself and he never gave up. He wasn't afraid to take risks either - writing under 10 different names and changing styles with each character.
