Paul Temple and the Front Page Men

(1939)
(A book in the Paul Temple series)
A novel by

 
Crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his glamorous wife Steve made their first appearance on BBC Radio in 1938. They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats - a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Temple's help with his latest tricky case. The radio serials proved so popular that Francis Durbridge was inspired to write a succession of novels featuring Paul Temple. In this one, read by Buffy and Little Britain star Anthony Head, the dapper detective is faced with a dangerous gang who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims. When detective novel The Front Page Men is published, it is a smash hit - not least because no-one knows the true identity of the author, the mysterious Andrea Fortune. Shortly afterwards, two robberies are committed, and on each occasion a card is left at the scene bearing the words "The Front Page Men." The police link these thefts to several high-profile kidnapping cases - and then the murders begin. Could the book be linked to the crimes? Is mild-mannered piano tuner J.P. Goldie as innocent as he seems? And just who is the mastermind behind it all? With Steve's life in danger, Paul Temple must find out before it is too late...
